Incarnate Word High School

Mission & Vision

Founded on faith by of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, our mission is to prepare confident young women who are dedicated to academic excellence, Christian service, and social justice. Through a faith-based curriculum, we promote a thorough knowledge of the Catholic faith, developing students who are prepared intellectually and enriched spiritually. At IWHS, we encourage each student to utilize the tools that we provide her to create her own story. Our modular schedule allows students to customize their academic journey to balance college-preparatory coursework, dual enrollment courses at UIW, athletics, extracurricular activities and community service. Young women who graduate from IWHS are highly prepared for success in college while remaining committed to their faith and sensitive to the needs of others.
