Incarnate Word Academy runs on a modified block schedule. A modified block schedule allows teachers and students extended time with each class one time per week for an experiential activity, a lab, a longer AP-style test, or time to teach with time remaining for supported practice. It also ensures that students are in all of their classes on most days, especially classes that need consistent practice. Modified block schedules can also reduce student homework load since they have fewer classes to prepare for twice a week. Please see below for the modified block bell schedule or download here.
