Athletics

At Incarnate Word Academy, we believe that the seeds sown on the athletic field yield strong, confident young high school women.

Our student athletes learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills while participating in the nine different sports that we offer. We believe that the valuable lessons learned on the athletic field translate into success in every other facet of our students' lives. Incarnate Word Academy is proud to compete in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) district 3-5A.

Our student athletes learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills while participating in nine different sports.
