From Incarnate Word Academy

In 1873, a group of Incarnate Word sisters established an all-girls, Catholic high school in downtown Houston on the corner of Crawford and Capitol Street. Nearly 150 years later, the Academy they founded continues to prepare hundreds of young women for success in college and beyond.

We prepare students to be Women of the Word through a rigorous college-preparatory education rooted in Academics, Values, and Spirituality. Our unique Young Leaders Program empowers students to bring ideas to life not only in the school community but in the real world. Incarnate Word Academy is a thriving, close-knit community where girls are encouraged to succeed and we invite you to come see for yourself what sets Incarnate Word Academy apart.
