YES Prep Program

Who We Are

YES Prep is a public charter school system in the Houston, Texas, area that prepares students for the college experience with a robust curriculum and extracurricular opportunities. Washington & Jefferson College is an IMPACT Partner Institution with YES Prep Public Schools, supporting a select number of students from the YES Prep system to visit the College for both fall and spring fly-out programs and offering scholarship packages to those students.

What We Do

Once on campus as a W&J student, the YES Prep Scholars are supported by the Office of Diversity and Leadership Initiatives. YES Prep Scholars are invited to participate in social and community service programming hosted by the Office of Diversity and Leadership Initiatives and often work with W&J’s Charles West Scholars in these capacities.

How to Join

YES Prep Scholars are applicants from the YES Prep school system who chose to attend W&J. Students at YES Prep schools who are IMPACT scholars will carry on the benefits of the program as YES Prep Scholars at W&J.

If you have questions, please talk to your high school guidance counselor, or reach out to our Office of Admission!
