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.
