Our Schools

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Our schools are 6th through 12th grade college preparatory public schools which capitalize on the intellectual curiosity and creative spirit inherent in all young women. The schools view learning as a dynamic participatory process that must allow young women to experience success upon success because young people with the confidence to learn want to learn more. The schools have developed a seamless articulation of curricula in English, Social Studies, Math, Science, Foreign Language, the Arts, Health, Physical Education, and Technology based on a structure of balanced learning, infusing and integrating literacy into every course and moving toward making every student an independent, lifelong learner. Check your school district for entrance requirements.

During the 2013-2014 school year, FEYW is serving over 4,100 students enrolled in our Young Women’s Leadership Schools across Texas. The girls are exceeding academic expectations and proving that all girls, regardless of their background or socio-economic status, can excel if given the right opportunity.
