Building upon the success of the Young Women’s Leadership Academy, YWLA Primary will be SAISD’s first all-girls, college-preparatory, K-5 school with a focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math), leadership development, and social-emotional learning. YWLA Primary will offer girls an environment wherein they can learn at an accelerated rate, experience hands-on STEAM projects, and cultivate their leadership. Opening in August 2019 with grades kindergarten and 1st, the school will ultimately become a full K-5 program with a grade phased in each year. YWLA Primary will be open to all girls in Bexar County who are eligible to enter kindergarten or 1st grade in August of 2019. Admission for YWLA will be based on a lottery system.

  • YWLA Primary will serve to empower girls and prepare them for success in a challenging, nurturing and inclusive learning environment
  • YWLA will integrate a curriculum path that allows students to focus deeply on courses directly related to science, technology, engineering, arts and math to better prepare them for college and careers
  • At YWLA Primary, there will be a focus on self-awareness, emotional health, persistence and resilience
