**Two organizations. One mission. **
The Ysleta Young Women’s Leadership Academy is a member of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network (YWPN), a nonprofit organization that partners with public school districts to operate the largest network of all-girls, public, college-preparatory schools in the nation. YWLA opened in the 2016-2017 school year with 125 6th grade girls and 98 7th grade girls adding a new 6th-grade cohort every year after. Currently, 368 students are enrolled in the school, of which more than 75% are identified as economically disadvantaged.
Together, we champion the educational needs of girls – creating an environment in which they are challenged to achieve their full academic potential, develop their talents and skills and explore leadership opportunities.
Will you join us?
For our female scholars, strong foundation for success begins with investment. Our unique approach – combining private and public resources – allows for us to fill in budgetary gaps and create an action plan that works for our students and our school. Will you join us? Funds will go towards our “To and Through College Preparatory Program,” which allows students to visit area and national colleges, work with advisors, prepare for assessments like the SAT and ACT and more.
