College & Career Guidance Center

The College and Career Guidance Center provides information to students and families to enable them to make wise decisions essential to their spiritual, academic, social, and emotional growth.

Our school's academic counselors advise students on how to choose a college to suit their interests, as well as assisting students to complete college and scholarship applications.

Additionally, our counselors offer students guidance towards college majors that fit their interests and college preparatory coursework.

Academic counselors also provides many services to parents including information on college fairs, college application nights, and financial aid nights.

The high school level sponsors school visits by individual college representatives throughout the school year.

Visit our Calendar to see any upcoming college and university visits to Incarnate Word Academy.

For more information about college planning services, please contact our Academic Counselor, Mrs. Sherilyn Calhoun.

College Planning

Choosing the right college or university is one of the most important decisions a student and his/her parents will make. Incarnate Word Academy understands that families may not be able to tour every college campus of interest. With that in mind, our Academic Counseling Office works hard to bring representatives from a wide range of excellent colleges and universities to our campus to meet students in person.
