Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) was founded July 2010. The school's founding principal, Ms. Melody Morgan, set a solid foundation for the academy, with the intent to provide widespread opportunities to each and every girl that enrolled. In the summer of 2016, the torch was passed to our current principal, Ms. Eulonda Washington. Since that time and under her leadership, the faculty has reaffirmed the vision and developed additional academic expectation, support mechanisms, rituals and traditions that cater to the complex, academic and psychological needs of young women.
All CSKYWLA Scholars will be globally conscious college and career ready STEMinists!!
Our mission is to develop globally competitive leaders by providing a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum.
At the academy we say, "CSKYWLA", which means to be empowered by love, nonviolent social change, and scholarship.
Empowering Every Girl, Every Day!

I will be on top of my game
I will stand out and not just fit in
I will be the greatest influence
I will take charge of my life
I will go the for best and not settle for less
I will step up and take my throne
I will positively pressure my peers
I will leave common behind
I will reject commonality
I refuse to be ordinary
I refuse to be regular
I will distinguish myself
I will elevate my thinking
I will set the rules
I will recreate the norm
I will devastate mediocrity
I will not cheat
I will not take short cuts
I will make the grade
I will take responsibility for my actions
I will lead the way
As much as I attempt to calm the chaos around me called life,
I can only control myself.
However, I have been told countless times that I am
Intelligent, courageous, strong and beautiful
So from this moment on, ever indelible mark I make
Upon myself or my community will embody a piece of me.
This indelible mark will embody intelligence, courageousness,
Strength and beauty because they are what make ME!
