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

Our Shadow Program gives 8th grade students interested in attending Incarnate Word Academy the chance to experience daily school life through a student’s perspective. During this half-day visit, students attend morning classes, eat lunch, and have the opportunity to truly experience what life at IWA is like for students. Our shadowing program is from November 8th through December 6th and will resume again on January 14th. Please email Kaitlyn Peña with any questions.
