• At Wake Young Women’s Leadership Academy, we believe that parents, students, and staff must work together to provide a quality educational experience. This student handbook is designed to provide support and assistance as we plan for success. We strongly encourage parents and students to review all information contained in this handbook together. By becoming acquainted with school policies, you will understand the high academic and personal expectations we hold for all of our students. We have included a great deal of information in a concise and convenient format, but the overall focus is leadership and respect. Respect for self, respect for others, and respect for school! John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” That’s our goal at Wake Young Women’s Leadership Academy.

    We look forward to a year of success and fun for everyone! By working together, we will develop OWLS—Outstanding Women Leaders who Serve.
