Library Mission

The mission of the Incarnate Word High School Library is to stimulate and support learning with appropriate resources and programs in order for students to become critical thinkers. Students are encouraged to become lifelong learners who not only love reading but also have the skills to find, analyze and use information. The Library supports the School curriculum, promotes the enjoyment of reading, and develops skills in critical and effective use of information resources by providing instruction to foster competence in acquiring, evaluating and using information and ideas; stimulating interest in reading and appreciation of literature; and providing intellectual and physical access to materials in multiple formats.

  • Bring your Own Device Program

    The Incarnate Word High School BYOD (Bring your Own Device) Program will take effect for the 2020-2021 school year. All IWHS students will be required to bring a laptop computer to school on a daily basis as part of their class material. 
     
    Incarnate Word High School promotes student choice, individual expression, and personal responsibility. We are providing students the power to choose the computer that best suits their needs, while expecting them to know how to use it and take proper care of it.
