    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.

    Student Creed

    As much as I attempt to calm the chaos around me called life, 
    I can't. 
    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!
