YES provides a comprehensive educational program that prepares low-income students for success in a four-year college. The YES charter mandates that our students must be accepted to a four-year college in order to receive their high school diploma. Our educational model includes: A longer school day (until 5:00) Service-Learning Saturdays once a month, a three week Summer School session, and spring college research trips. The ultimate goal of the YES model is to create a critical mass of college educated students who can then return to Houston and bring real change to our under-served neighborhoods and communities.
