About YWCP Young Women’s College Prep Charter School of Rochester (YWCP) will open with 75 students in seventh grade and grow to serve students in grades 7-12. The school will affiliate with the Young Women’s Leadership Network (YWLN), which supports four highly successful single-gender secondary schools in New York City. The network also affiliates with schools in Maryland, Illinois, and Texas. The flagship YWLN school in East Harlem has celebrated a graduation rate over 96% for the past ten years, and every graduating senior has been accepted to college with significant financial aid. Over 75% of these students have graduated from or remain in college. YWCP will benefit from the structured and targeted support that YWLN provides for its network schools and affiliates.
