All of our policies and expectations for the school year are outlined in our Student/Parent Handbook. Any changes made to the handbook throughout the year will be communicated if and as they occur. Our 2023-2024 Student/Parent Handbook will be available August 1.
Falcon Fridays are every Friday during the school year when we do not have an all-school Mass or a special event requiring the Mass uniform. On these days, students may wear their IWA uniform skirt with a school spirit, or club or organization T-shirt. Dismissal on Falcon Fridays is at 2:45 p.m.
Gifts to the Incarnate Word Academy help our school continue a 145-year tradition of providing young women in the Houston area the education and values to live for others and Jesus, the Incarnate Word.
Epicurean Group, LLC, is delighted to serve Incarnate Word Academy and offer delicious, healthy foods, prepared fresh each day in their kitchen – and served on site at school. As a partner with Houston-area private schools for more than 25 years, they understand what students want and what they need for a well-balanced meal and for optimal performance throughout each school day.
Parents can register for student accounts via credit card, or students may buy meals or a la carte items at point of purchase with cash.
The IWA Spirit Shop offers great IWA swag, including T-shirts, accessories and more! In addition to spirit wear, we also have some uniform items available for purchase (see the “Uniform Approved” section). We hold in-person sales events throughout the year, but all items are available 24/7 online.
NOTE: Additional uniform items are available from Tommy Hilfiger here.
IWA students should use their current class schedule along with the 2023-2024 Textbook Listto identify their required textbooks. The IWA Textbook List denotes whether each text is required to be purchased in print or digital version, or whether it is the student’s choice.
Our weekly e-newsletter, "The Weekly Word," provides families with essential information about upcoming school events, policies, student and faculty news, and more. Many questions about what's happening at IWA are answered in the newsletter, which is emailed every Friday afternoon during the school year (excluding breaks) at 3:00 p.m. "The Weekly Word" is sent to students, parents and guardians automatically.
