  • History

    Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) was founded July 2010. Representing the class of 2017, the legacy class is progressing on target with their sights set on college. CSKYWLA has a singular goal – to ensure each young woman graduates from college ready to make a positive impact on the global community. The school's founding principal, Melody Morgan, set a solid foundation to advance the vision.  The torch has been passed to the current principal, Eulonda Washington, during the summer of 2016. Since this time, the faculty has reaffirmed the vision and developed additional academic expectations, support mechanisms, rituals and traditions that cater to the complex academic and psychological needs of young women.
