YWCP will remain closed until Fall 2020. Fall 2020 will be a Hybrid Learning Model.

Mid-July the NYS Education Department and NYS Department of Health released guidelines for school districts as they plan to reopen. These guidance documents outline strict health and safety mandatory requirements that districts must follow in order to reopen schools safely. After reviewing the guidance documents thoroughly, YWCP has determined that our plan will be a ​Hybrid LearningModel. This means that we will have both Remote-Learning and some In-Person Instructional Opportunities.
In the first phase, we will begin the 2020-2021 school year with all students engaged fully in Remote Learning​. As we continue to navigate through the health and safety requirements, we will begin to add In-Person Instructional Opportunities, beginning with our most vulnerable students. We will continue planning Phase 2 & 3 which will include opportunities for all students to eventually have In-Person Instructional Opportunities.

YWCP is an affiliate of the Young Women's Leadership Network (YWLN), which supports five highly successful, single-gender secondary schools in New York City.

Young Women's College Prep Charter School of Rochester (YWCP) offers young women grades 7-12 from the city of Rochester the opportunity to learn in a single-gender environment, free from stereotypes, where a strong focus is placed on preparation for college enrollment and graduation.

YWCP partners with families and instills in each student a sense of community, responsibility and ethics. We support students in their endeavors to achieve excellence in and out of the classroom, helping them to develop the strong voices they will need to be leaders.
