The Women’s Academy of Excellence opened in 2004 as a single gender, public, uniformed learning environment with a private school feeling. Affectionately referred to as the WAE, the mission of the Women's Academy of Excellence is to create a community of lifelong learners, where students' intellectual curiosity and creativity is nurtured, and their developmental needs as teenagers are met to their individual satisfaction.

CDC Recommendations

  • Students benefit from in-person learning, and safely returning to in-person instruction continues to be a priority.

  • Vaccination is the leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Promoting vaccination can help schools safely return to in-person learning as well as extracurricular activities and sports.

  • CDC recommends universal indoor masking by all* students (ages 2 years and older), staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.

  • New CDC guidance has reduced the recommended time for isolation and quarantine periods to five days. For details see CDC’s page on Quarantine and Isolation.

  • Screening testing, ventilation, handwashing and respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick and getting tested, contact tracing in combination with quarantine and isolation, and cleaning and disinfection are also important layers of prevention to keep schools safe.

  • Students, teachers, and staff should stay home when they have signs of any infectious illness and be referred to their healthcare provider for testing and care.
