The Incarnate Word Academy counselors serve as advocates and resources for all students within the framework of the mission, philosophy and goals of Incarnate Word Academy. The counseling office provides guidance to students concerning personal and academic issues, including academic advising and guidance in the college search and application process. Students may make their own appointments with the school counselor, either individually or in groups. Additionally, referrals may be made by teachers, administrators and parents. Parents are urged to inform and update the school if they have concerns about their daughter(s).
