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.


Mission  Statement
