Incarnate Word Academy has been my home away from home for the past four years and I couldn’t have asked for better. As a non-catholic student from a large public school, the thought of attending such a different environment was scary at first, but the things that make this school so special have helped me grow so much. I have learned to think critically about religion and to question what I believe. I have had the opportunity to grow stronger academically, with incredible teachers to guide me. I have learned from both leadership classes and leadership positions, and know that all that I have gained here will go on to help me in college. Thank you, IWA!

First of all, the Downtown location is optimal for learning! To add, everything is easily accessible, especially transportation. The learning environment is both rigorous and meaningful; each student can ask for help from their teachers. The class sizes are reasonable, and teachers definitely promote learning and participation! The friendliness shines through in each student, and I have felt very “at home”, here at IWA.
I have overwhelmingly loved my experience at Incarnate Word Academy! I would not change my high school experience for anything. The small community, sisterhood, and theology is what makes Incarnate Word, Incarnate Word. The school has less than 400 people and the admissions team says the school will never go beyond that number. I know all 80 people in my classification and proudly call all of them my sisters. The reason I am not giving 5 stars is because there are a lot of restrictions on the students that keep our sports programs from their full potential, seniors from fully enjoying their senior year, etc. Regardless of the restrictions, IWA gave me an amazing education in Theology and I would not be at the place I am in my faith without the great teachers and extracurriculars we have based around the Catholic faith. I love Incarnate Word, no doubt and I would not have wanted to go anywhere else.
