Important Things to Know for the New School Year!

The first day of school is right around the corner! We hope this compilation of important things to know will help ease the transition into the 2019-2020 academic year.

Angel Check-In

Angel Check-In will take place on August 2, 2019. Parents of new and returning students may register between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

In preparation for Angel Check-In, print your school level's Angel Check-In form below and have it with you at the event.

Avoid long lines before attending Angel Check-In by logging into ParentsWeb to pay your activity fee, athletic fee, as well as any balances from the previous year. After submitting your payment online, come into the Business Office before Angel Check-In to have your form signed.

If your Middle or High School Level child does not participate in athletics, you will need to contact the Business Office at 361-883-0857 ext. 117 to have the athletic fee removed from the PayNow area within ParentsWeb.

Tuition may be paid via FACTS no later than August 2, 2019. Create an account or log in to schedule your tuition payments.

    School Supplies

    It's time to hit the stores for all those must-have school supplies! For more information, check out our school supply lists.

    Dress Code

    IWA maintains a code of dress and grooming consistent with its character as a private, Catholic, college-preparatory school. Students are expected to be in proper attire when they arrive on campus. Parents are expected to support this policy by ensuring that their children wear only the approved school attire. Visit our website for the Dress Code Guidelines.

    Uniforms

    Visit Academic Outfitters, located at 1334 Airline Rd., for all of your required Angel attire. Also shop the Angel Spirit Store at Angel Check-In or online for athletic apparel and more.

    Angel Spirit Items Available at Angel Check-In

    Would you like to stand out at your Angel's next game? Looking for ways to support IWA? Be sure to check out the Angel Spirit Items offered by Stitch It! during Angel Check-In!

    Lunch Options at IWA

    Incarnate Word Academy provides students with quality foods thanks to its partnership with Top Choice Catering. To learn more about Top Choice Catering, click here.

    Top Choice Catering uses an online payment system through My School Account. This payment system allows parents to monitor lunchtime purchases, track what children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into meal accounts, transfer funds between students, and create an email reminder for when an account balance gets low. For more information on creating a My School Account, click here.

    Visit our Angel Cafeteria webpage for lunch pricing, monthly lunch menus, and more.

    Athletes

    All athletes are required to the Athletic Prayer Breakfast on August 10, 2019.

    Middle and High School Level students will have their physicals completed after this year's Athletic Prayer Breakfast. A $30 fee should be made payable to Incarnate Word Academy to support the Campus-Wide Athletic Booster Club. The proceeds assist the Campus-Wide Booster Club in support of campus athletes. For more information, visit our Campus Calendar.

    Save time by completing your Athletic Packet, which contains all current forms and documentation required for athletic participation, prior to Angel Check-In. Links to the required documents are located below.
