Philosophy of Incarnate Word High School
Incarnate Word High School (IWHS) is a private Catholic college-preparatory school for young women. It is an integral part of the University of the Incarnate Word. The school was specifically founded to assist parents in the spiritual formation and education of their daughters. The intent of the school programs is to nourish all dimensions of the student in order to prepare her for responsible and productive Christian living.
Dedicated to academic excellence, Incarnate Word High School challenges the students with a spiritually and intellectually demanding curriculum. The faculty constantly seeks to update the curriculum in order to maintain the high standards expected of a college-preparatory school. This helps the students learn how to critically assess the choices before them, and how to cope with new and challenging circumstances.
