We have many opportunities for prospective students and their families to get a glimpse into the day-to-day activities of our students, faculty and staff. 

Private Tours

The Admissions Office conducts private tours for individuals and groups.  To make an appointment to visit the Academy, please e-mail Kate O'Brien or call 713.227.3637, ext. 117. 


We invite 8th-grade students to spend a morning shadowing a current student. If you are wondering what it's like to go to Incarnate Word Academy, this opportunity offers a unique chance to sit in on classes and experience the daily life of the IWA family. At this time, the shadowing program is full and will resume in March. Please email Clare Kafoglis with any questions at

Prospective Parent Socials - Food, Fellowship & Falcon Insights

Join some of our Parent Ambassadors for an informal get together with light refreshments & insights into the Incarnate Word Academy experience.

Group visits

Every fall, we collaborate with middle schools to organize group visits for 8th graders to the Academy. In addition to meeting current students, touring the campus, and learning about the longstanding history and tradition, students have lunch on campus with our student representatives. 

Open House

Open House is a great opportunity for your entire family to walk through the halls of IWA and talk to students, teachers, and counselors.
