Incarnate is amazing at focusing on the whole person. It is said that girls confidence grows at same sex schools, but it soars at Incarnate. Our teachers care about us tremendously and they care about our lives outside of the classroom. Our administration is some of the best The diverse community is one of my favorite aspects; we have girls of different races, religions, economical backgrounds, etc. and I believe that is what makes our school so fun. I believe no school has as much school spirit as IWA does, and it shows at our home, and away, sporting events. There have been multiple occasions where Incarnate's fan sections has been bigger than the opposing home team's, which is crazy to me! I love this school so much, and I know everyone involved whether that be students, teachers, alums, parents, etc. all have the same love and enjoyment for my school.

Incarnate Word Academy is an amazing school with opportunities you can’t get at very many other places. The modular schedule makes IWA unique, and makes students even more prepared for college because it teaches us how to manage our time. The teachers truly care about our success and well-being, the food is amazing, and IWA is known for excellence in athletics as well as academics. In addition to that, there is a family atmosphere in the school and a level of tradition that you just won’t find anywhere else. IWA has truly become my home away from home and I absolutely love it there!
I really loved my experience at Incarnate Word Academy. Besides the obvious advantages of the college preparatory environment, modular schedule, and advanced college credit courses, I thrived tremendously because of the inclusivity of the students. Everyone made me feel welcomed at all times and that I was a part of a family. The teachers have always made me feel comfortable to talk to them about anything and everything. Some of my teachers are closer to me than even my parents are. I loved learning not only in the classroom but from the different experiences of my peers because of how diverse the school was. I was pushed out of my comfort zone and learned many things about the world and social justice issues in our society. After attending Incarnate Word Academy, I feel ready to take on the world.
