Welcome to the Young Women's Leadership Charter School

The only all-girls public school in Chicago

Fifteen years ago, a group of women in Chicago were inspired by a vision: that in a perfect world, every young woman would be empowered to transform her life through education.

The Young Women’s Leadership Charter School, Chicago’s only public school for girls, is the result of that vision.

Every day the faculty, staff and supporters of YWLCS dedicate their passion, energy and resources to help nearly 350 urban girls embark on a journey to places many never could have imagined.


Please join us as we continue to inspire our students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
