Incarnate Word Academy has provided me with the best college preparatory education in Corpus Christi. I have been challenged in all of my courses, given innumerable opportunities to get involved in my community, encouraged to develop and refine my leadership skills, and adequately prepared to academics at the college level.

I have had a delightful experience these past four years at IWA. The teachers are wonderful and are very encouraging. They are very friendly and are always willing to help in any way. Another thing I like about this school is its religious environment. I enjoy being part of a school that encourages you to grow in faith and in academics.But there is one thing I do no entirely enjoy... and that is the lunch. The lunch is pretty good but not great. I feel that a new lunch menu would be more pleasant. Bring back the brownies and seasoned fries!
Incarnate Word Academy has made me feel welcomed from my first step on campus. The teachers truly want their students to succeed and are willing to work early and late to see that through. The college preparatory curriculum has taught me so much and has definitely prepared me for college. Incarnate Word Academy also offers many clubs that students can get involved with and build their resume. Students are also allowed to play multiple sports, which is not allowed at many schools. Incarnate Word Academy is a good choice for your children. If you feel like you can not afford the tuition, there is scholarships and work study to off set the cost.
