Incarnate Word Academy is one of the only schools in the country to offer its students a concentration in leadership studies. This leadership designation is written on high school transcripts, and is communicated to colleges through student applications and teacher recommendations. Students can graduate with a concentration in leadership studies if they take 3 out of the 4 leadership courses. A concentration course average of 90 or above is required.
Distinguished Leader is an honor given to those who have distinguished themselves during their time at IWA by living up to our definition of an authentic, bold servant leader. All IWA students are eligible to complete all 4 requirements and earn the Distinguished Leader Distinction.
IWA Involvement: We expect Distinguished Leaders to take on a formal or informal leadership role in their clubs, leadership organizations, honor societies, student government, fine arts and athletic programs.
