Upcoming Opportunities to Explore and Connect at IWA
SUNDAY, DEC. 3, 2023
Join us for an opportunity to meet with IWA faculty and students. Learn about our one-of-a-kind Leadership program, STEM classes, Athletics, Arts, and so much more. See what it means to be a part of a
150-year-old tradition of Sisterhood in Downtown Houston.
Our goal for private tours is for potential incoming students and families to gain a more accurate feel for the school community, student life, and IWA facilities. You have the options to book a shared (with other families) or private IWA tour time. Please note there will be a limit of two adults per touring student. Prior to your arrival, you will register the members of your party via email response to finalize touring.
Students who sign up to shadow at IWA will visit current classes, meet IWA students and teachers, attend an IWA lunch, be partnered with a campus shadow buddy, and finish off with a Falcon Q&A time. Completing this form serves as your student's permission slip.
If you have any questions, Please email the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713-227-3637
