From the President
Dear Alumnae, Families and Friends,
Incarnate Word Academy’s legacy is forged by the traditions taught and applied each day. These traditions are deeply rooted in Catholic values and a commitment to community that makes an IWA education exceptional. Students are empowered to seek answers to their questions and to put into action all that they learn – in the classroom, with their families, in their communities and beyond.
A recent team visit from our accrediting agency, AdvancED, has confirmed what we know about our school - what we are doing is outstanding. The lead evaluator used the word “phenomenal” when describing IWA. Our accreditation report shows that IWA: uses effective instructional methodologies and practices in the classroom environment; fosters a community of critical thinkers and leaders; and supports all aspects of personal development.
By giving annually to IWA, you provide the margin of excellence that makes the difference between good and phenomenal. Annual gifts help to bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of educating each student. This year’s tuition gap is approximately $2,100 per student. Annual fund gifts support scholarships, financial assistance, fine arts, athletics, technology enhancement and physical plant improvements.
Gifts of any size add up to make a world of difference for today’s Women of the Word! Every gift will be acknowledged in IWA’s Annual Report, and donors at the Gold Knight Level or higher will be our guests at the President’s Dinner. We express our gratitude for your generous support of the Truly Incarnate Annual Fund and for your desire to show our entire community how philanthropy, kindness and commitment impact all who benefit from IWA’s tradition of excellence.
In addition to the Truly Incarnate Annual Fund, there are many other ways to make a gift to the academy. Simply click on any of the tabs at the top the pages in this section to learn more about each option.
Praised be the Incarnate Word!
