    The YWLA at Bill Arnold has joined the Young Women's Preparatory Network!


    Our mission is to support single-gender, college-preparatory, public education in Texas and beyond, giving young women the academic and leadership skills to achieve success in college and in life.


    Our schools shine as proof of the educational benefits of receiving an all-girls, college preparatory, public education. The schools offer young urban girls in Texas a choice in their education … a choice for a brighter educational future.

    Our young women are exceeding academic expectations and proving all students, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status, can excel if given the right opportunity. Our schools have a foundation of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum with a focus on our core values: Leadership, College Readiness, Wellness Life Skills.

    The amount awarded in scholarships to the 2020 graduating class of 354 students: $15.8 Million
