History of Senior Signing Day

Senior Signing Day is YES Prep's take on a ceremony that traditionally is reserved for star athletes playing big-time Division 1 sports.

YES Prep hosted its inaugural Senior Signing Day in 2001.

While those are impressive accomplishments, we believe our YES Prep seniors deserve the same, if not more, attention because each one of them represents what we set out to prove when we first founded YES Prep back in 1998: Any student -regardless of zip code, ethnicity, or income level- can graduate from high school and attend and complete a four-year college, when they are given access to the same opportunities and the same resources that students receive in great private schools and in great suburban public schools.
