The Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington (GLOW), is a 6th – 12th grade single gender school modeled after the successful Young Women’s Leadership Schools (http://www.tywls.org). GLOW Academy is a free North Carolina public charter school that opened in the Fall of 2016 with 100 6th grade girls.
GLOW Academy educates the ‘whole girl,’ empowering them to claim the highest levels of personal and academic achievement to become future leaders and life-long learners. We seek to close the achievement and opportunity gaps for first generation, college-bound young women by focusing on college preparedness, enrollment and graduation for all of our students.
The school is supported by the GLOW NC Foundation which is a 501(c)3, nonprofit located in Wilmington, NC.
