School Board

The Incarnate Word Academy School Board of Directors was initiated in 1994. The board serves as a policy-making body to enhance the school's viability, visibility, and solvency. The Incarnate Word Academy School Board has twice been awarded the prestigious National Outstanding Board commendation, in 2000 and in 2008, by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA).
