Our Young Leaders Program, unique among U.S. high schools, offers four years of progressive classes that help students develop their leadership abilities through
hands-on projects in our school and throughout our community. IWA’s Catholic mission allows students grow in their relationship with Jesus, the Incarnate Word, and live according to His values. This compels students to embrace service as an integral part of their daily lives, and become bold, authentic servant leaders who embody kindness, problem solving and compassion. Incarnate Word Academy provides rich, experiential learning opportunities and our diverse student body brings together young women from across Houston. Our graduates go on to some of the country's top schools, prepared to succeed in college and beyond.
