    Incarnate Word Academy Reviews

    A lot of Catholic schools operate through strict indoctrination and closed-mindedness; at IWA I was taught from a moralistic standpoint that formed a core of strong values that continue to serve as my basis for critical thinking and philosophical thinking. I had a great experience here in many ways and get frequent notification of the school's continued improvement. I was challenged to a point that prepared me so well that I was never thrown by another academic experience, all the way through my graduate studies. Some areas are lacking, namely the small building and grounds and lack of structure for the arts, but the overall core education and sense of community is strong.

    IWA is a hidden gem! From core classes the ensure every student graduates having taken Algerbra I, to optional before school Latin classes, award winning math and science departments and an amazing technology lab, every student is give multiple opportunities to excel. For the artists, art class includes art history and music classes that actually teach children to play real instruments and read music! Multiple extra curricular activities are available, so every child gets a chance to shine.
    Impressed with IWA. My kids have been attending for the past three years and have grown both academically and spiritually. Highly recommended!
