About the School

The Young Women's Leadership School of East Harlem opened in 1996 as the first in a national network of all-girls college prep schools. TYWLS nurtures the intellectual curiosity and creativity of young women by supporting the whole girl in order to maximize academic achievement, social and emotional well-being, and post-secondary success. Our support structures include daily advisory, after-school academic tutoring, and regular contact with parents. The Young Women's Leadership Network supports our school with a wide range of leadership programs. The CollegeBound Initiative (CBI) provides college access support with a full-time CBI college counselor on our staff who guides each of our students through the college application process.
