IWVHS

Dear Future Shamrock

IWHS plans to be the first catholic private school to launch the creation of an alternative learning experience without physical boundaries in Texas. COVID has sped up the timeline and has strengthened the school’s findings that a number of students thrive in an e-learning setting.

Incarnate Word Virtual High School (IWVHS) is an option for families that relocate often for employment, military duties, or for families with daughters in competitive sports or performing arts. IWVHS is also an option for families who have chosen homeschooling or have homebound students that want a program that offers an innovative education and gives families flexibility.

IWVHS is an amazing opportunity for families that do not live near a parochial school but want religion throughout their child’s curriculum. Students enrolled in IWVHS will experience a very meaningful and faith-based academic program, college and career counseling, and student activities which are consistently data-driven.
