The Young Women’s STEAM Research & Preparatory Academy – EPISD’s only single-gender school – is now accepting applications for girls interested in attending this rigorous and innovative campus for the 2018-19 school year.
Girls who will be sixth-, seventh- or eighth-graders next school year may apply. The school is free and open to any girl living in El Paso County.
Young Women’s Academy provides a focus on science, technology, engineering, the arts and math using the New Tech Network’s project-based learning techniques. Students also participate in extensive service learning and mentoring opportunities. Transportation is provided for EPISD students who are accepted into the Academy.
The school offers UIL sports and other clubs and organizations. Young Women’s Academy will add one grade level every year until it becomes a sixth- through 12th-grade campus.
To provide more information to potential students and their parents, the school is having two open houses from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on April 4 and 11 in the school’s cafeteria, 2231 Arizona Avenue.
Parents can also apply online.
