Young Women’s Leadership Academy
At the academy we say, “CSKYWLA”, which means to be empowered by love, nonviolent social change, and scholarship.” We are a single gender school for girls. We begin each day with the pledge of allegiance, our student creed, and our student pledge. In addition to this, the principal provides the staff and students with a message for how to operate throughout the day.
