Young Women Today, Leaders Tomorrow

Welcome to the Young Women's College Preparatory Academy, where we are preparing young women today to be leaders of tomorrow. As principal, my goal is to ensure that each student is provided with a holistic educational experience that will equip her with the tools for becoming successful. Our students will develop academically, think critically, lead purposefully, and make healthy and responsible decisions. Rigorous academic training from our highly trained faculty, combined with effective mentorship and guidance from our school staff, will not only keep every student on the path to excellence, but also foster a learning environment where each young lady will expect the best from herself and classmates.

I am excited about my role in the Houston Independent School District's historic initiative to grow young female leaders and invite you to join us in our mission. We are embarking on a promising journey and would like to bring you along.

Delesa O'Dell Thomas, Principal
