Young Women's Leadership Academy
Latest Bond 2020 Updates

The Young Women's Leadership Academy Project Advisory Team, or PAT, comprised of members of the school community, met on May 27, 2021 for an introduction to the Bond 2020 project. Representatives from the architecture firm, Kirksey, were on hand to get to know the PAT members and to kick off the conversation around what the project will look like when it is complete. The project will focus on replacing the campus while maintaining the historic attributes of the school. Like some other Bond 2020 projects, that involves a combination of modernizing the spaces and integrating historic preservation components.

The work through Bond 2020 will meet the District's new Educational Specifications guidelines. More will be discussed as the project gets underway.
