Experience IWA

The best way to get to know IWA is to experience it firsthand.  

We offer many opportunities to explore our beautiful, welcoming campus in the heart of downtown Houston.  We look forward to getting to know you better and showing off our school in its unrehearsed, authentic, joyous state.

Every fall, we collaborate with middle schools to organize group visits for 8th graders. In addition to meeting current students, touring the campus, and learning about our longstanding history and traditions, students have lunch on campus with our student representatives.  

Shadow Days

We invite 8th-grade students to spend a morning shadowing a current student. If you are wondering what it's like to go to Incarnate Word Academy, this opportunity offers a unique chance to sit in on classes and experience the daily life of the IWA family. Our shadowing program is from November 8th through December 6th and will resume again on January 14th.  Please email Clare Kafoglis with any questions at clarek@incarnateword.org

Sign up for a shadow day!

Private Tours

The Admissions Office conducts private tours for individuals and groups.  Please e-mail Kate O'Brien or call 713.227.3637, ext. 117 to make an appointment to visit the Academy.

On my IWA tour, one student looked at me out in the hallway.  She smiled, waved, and simply said, “You need to come to IWA! We love it here.”  IWA girls want everyone to experience the same spirit, love, and pride we have for our school.

Open House

Open House is a great opportunity for the whole entire family to walk through the halls of IWA and talk to students, teachers, and counselors. Open House takes place in November each year.

Prospective Parent Socials

Join some of our Parent Ambassadors for food, fellowship, and falcon insights!  Along with light refreshments, you will have the opportunity to hear from the parents of a current IWA student about the application & transition processes as well as their overall experiences with IWA. We offer socials in various locations within the greater Houston area throughout the year so you can choose the location nearest you. A registration link will be available on this page when dates for socials are solidified.

We encourage current IWA students to bring their little sisters (or cousins, friends or neighbors) in 3rd-5th grade to join them on campus for a fun evening event on February 15th, 2019. The Little Falcons will get to experience IWA through sisterhood, academics, service, food & fun! Dinner will be provided.

Look n Lead Middle School Conference

Launched in 2014, Look n Lead is an exciting one-of-a-kind conference specifically for 7th and 8th-grade girls who have an interest in learning how to become leaders.
