Promote College Readiness Among Local Girls
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 across Texas 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. Close to 400 students participate in our college preparatory academy with a significant portion being identified as economically disadvantaged. Our enrichment programs are built on the pillars of college and career readiness, responsible leadership, and wellness life skills.
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.

For our female scholars, strong foundation for success begins with investment. Our unique approach – combining private and public resources – allows us to create opportunities for our students that would not otherwise be possible. Will you join us? Funds will support our “To and Through College Preparatory Program,” which allows students to visit area and national colleges, get one-on-one college advising, prepare for the SAT and ACT and more.
