We teach our girls responsible leadership and emphasize skills that
contribute to their general well-being because we believe these are
integral componentsto their success. While our girls receive a
well-rounded college preparatory education, they experience lessons
that integrate math, science, and technology across the curriculum.
Women have historically been underrepresented in these career fields,
and we are committed to developing our community'sfuture leaders in all
career fields. Here at YWLA, we are building tomorrow’s leaders and
empowering young women to achieve their fullest potential through a
rigorous college-preparatory education that is free of cost to our students.
We expect every single graduate to enroll in a four-yearuniversity or college
upon graduation. Our students areprovided a strong support networkto
ensure they continue their academic success at the university level.
We aim to grow our family of young leaders with students who are
enthusiastic about learning, have a desire to lead and are committed to
higher education. Explore this website and see if YWLA San Antonio
