We teach our girls responsible leadership and emphasize skills that
contribute to their general well-being because we believe these are
integral components to 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's future 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-year university or college
upon graduation. Our students are provided a strong support network to
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
is for you.
To transform SAISD into a national model urban
school districtwhere every child graduates and is
educated so that he or she is prepared to be a
contributing member of the community.
Welcome back to all of our returning Cardinals!
Special welcome to all students new to our Cardinal Family!
It's going to be a great year!
The Young Women’s Leadership Academy is part of the Young
Women’s Preparatory Network, a non-profit organization
that partners with public school districts to create and support
all-girl schools. The schools have a foundation of STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum with a focus on
the pillars of leadership, college readiness, and health and
wellness. Young Women’s Prep serves more than 4,100
6th through 12th graders on seven campuses in Texas. Over 75%
of the students are from economically disadvantaged homes and
85% will be first- generation college students. All of the students
graduate from high school and are accepted at a four-year college
or university. In 2014, 146 graduates received a combined $15.8
million in merit scholarships and grants and are attending 73
different colleges and universities. Young Women’s Prep is
located in Dallas, Texas and supports schools in
Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Houston, Lubbock, and
San Antonio. www.youngwomensprep.com
