Academics
Curriculum
IWA’s rigorous college-preparatory core curriculum, with numerous honors and Advanced Placement options, is complemented with wide-ranging electives that challenge students to find their strengths and to make worldly, conscientious decisions.

IWA asks students to value curiosity and new experiences just as much as they value rigor when they build personally-challenging schedules from our college preparatory core, 28 honors and AP classes and wide-reaching electives.

At the heart of our academic program is our greatest resource: our competent and compassionate faculty that fosters a challenging and supportive environment where learners and leaders can grow. When recent IWA graduates return to campus, they frequently note that their academic preparedness surpassed their college classmates, and they enthusiastically attribute this to the qualified, dedicated and passionate faculty and staff.
