Develop young women to discover their voice, succeed in college, and lead impactful, meaningful lives.
Equity. We share responsibility for challenging inequities and ensuring all students succeed.
Community. We trust and support one another.
Growth. We are constantly growing to be our best selves.
When KCGPA welcomes its first students in Fall 2019, it will become the first single-gender, open-enrollment charter public school in Kansas City.
KCGPA will be in northeast Kansas City and serve young women from across the Kansas City Public School boundaries. KCGPA will enroll 100 fifth graders in its first year and grow one grade per year to form a 5-8 middle school and 9-12 high school.
Both schools will foster a strong sense of community and a rigorous, college-bound academic culture.
KCGPA is an affiliate of the Young Women’s Leadership Network (YWLN). Founded in 1996, this national network of all-girls schools has ensured college access for thousands of young women from low-income neighborhoods. In its 20+ years of operation, YWLN schools have achieved: a more than 95% high school graduation rate, a nearly 100% college acceptance rate, and more than $65 million total in financial aid awards; nearly $20,000 average student aid package annually.
