From Incarnate Word High School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Incarnate Word High School. Established in 1881, by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, IWHS has served as a home of learning and spiritual growth for generations of young women from every walk of life.

We believe in a holistic process where students, parents, faculty, staff, sisters, alumni, and administration all work together to ensure academic success, a growth mindset and a belief in continual school improvement.

As a community, we know we need to prepare our young women for jobs that may not currently exist, using technology that is still being invented, to solve problems that have yet to be discovered. We can do this all by creating authentic, meaningful, and relevant learning experiences rooted in our Catholic upbringing.

Incarnate Word High School is a place where tradition grounds us in the spirit of community and learning happens at the speed of light.

Praised be the Incarnate Word!

Sincerely,

Dr. Anna Downey

Principal & CEO
