Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the primary advocate and guardian of the IWA Mission.  The Board sets policies regarding the academic program and finances.  They ensure that the physical plant is maintained and upgraded and hold the President and administration accountable for providing personnel and programming to ensure the stability and integrity of Incarnate Word Academy.  The Board, in turn, is responsible to the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word who founded IWA and continue to sponsor it today.
