EPISD’s Girls Academy Looking for 1st ‘Fresh-WOMAN’ Class

EPISD’s all-girl school is expanding and applications are now being accepted for its initial fresh-WOMAN class.

The Young Women’s STEAM Research & Preparatory Academy,  has served middle-school girls since its inception three years ago. As originally planned, the Academy is now expanding to serve high-school students.

“Our goal from the start has always been to provide a high-quality learning environment in a single-gender campus in order to maximize opportunities and access,” said Principal Dr. Cynthia Ontiveros. “We are happy to start our first high-school cohort next year with our first group of ninth graders. This group of young women will be our pioneering class that will grow our high school all the way to the 12th grade.”

The Academy provides girls in all grades with a Project-Based Learning curriculum based on the popular New Tech Network.

Teachers use research-based approaches to education, focusing on science, technology, engineering, the arts and math to provide early access to careers through high-quality instruction, community service learning projects, internships and mentorship.

The school offers students with college dual-credit opportunities, Advanced Placement courses and certificate programs that include computer information research science, software development, business and marketing intelligence analysis, and social justice and advocacy programs.

Students at the school will have access to extracurricular activities, clubs and major competitive sports. Like every other EPISD campus, the Academy is free and open to any qualifying student living in El Paso County.
