An affiliate of the Young Women’s Leadership Network, the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women (BLSYW) is a college preparatory school with an emphasis on leadership and academic excellence and enrichment in a single sex environment. Our program demonstrates a strong commitment to math, science and technology—fields where women are underrepresented and where Maryland needs to cultivate a strong knowledge base and workforce—as well as to the arts and humanities, which teach students to appreciate and engage critically the world that they will lead.

We Need Your Support!

The BLSYW Way embodies leadership, girl power, college readiness, high expectations and a strong support network. Our BLSYW family is unique and diverse; just like Baltimore itself. And we are joined together in one mission: transform Baltimore, one young woman at a time.
