Young Women's Preparatory Academy

The Young Women's Preparatory Academy (YWPA) is a grade 6-12 magnet school for girls, located in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, Florida. YWPA is a part of Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS).

Established in 2006, it is focused on mathematics, science and technology. 

YWPA is a selective public secondary school in Miami, Fl, admitting less than 10% of applicants for the fall semester of 2011. Albeit the school's main track specializes highly in mathematics and sciences, the small class sizes allows for there to be more focus on the needs of each individual student, allowing counselors to structure a program that will help each student learn and gather experience in line with their goals past secondary school. 

The vision of the Young Women's Preparatory Academy is to nurture, empower, and educate girls during a fundamental time in their lives. We will strive to prepare our girls to be the best they can be and independently stand as intellectually advanced young women. By intentionally recruiting a diverse group of high-achieving girls, we work toward a more equitable world.

The Young Women's Preparatory Academy is dedicated to excellence in the education of girls and young women. Our girls will actively pursue the opportunities of a rich and challenging curriculum and develop the wisdom and courage to lead in local and global communities. Through technology, students gain access to local and worldwide resources. At all levels of sequential and high-achieving curriculum, the school attempts to foster an environment in which students are comfortable taking intellectual risks, pursuing independent interests and exploring various approaches to learning. We strive on providing a framework for our girls to gain self-confidence, leadership skills and a sense of responsibility.
