Overview

In a faith-based, college preparatory environment, Incarnate Word High School prepares confident young women dedicated to academic excellence, Christian service and social justice.

The first Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, three young French women, motivated by the love of God and the recognition of Gods presence in each person came to San Antonio from Galveston in 1869 to minister to the sick and the poor. As a natural extension of their ministry, Mother Madeleine Chollet, Sister Pierre Cinquin and Sister Agnes Buisson ventured into the care of orphans starting the first childrens homes in San Antonio. In 1881, the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity was granted a charter by the State of Texas to operate educational institutions of all levels. Both Incarnate Word High School and the University of the Incarnate Word trace their roots back to this charter.

As the oldest Catholic, all-girl, college preparatory school in San Antonio, Incarnate Word High School has a storied history of academic distinction. Incarnate Word welcomes to its community persons of diverse backgrounds in the belief that their respectful interaction advances the discovery of truth, mutual understanding, self-realization and the common good. At Incarnate Word, each student is provided with countless opportunities to develop all dimensions of her personmind, body, and spirit-- through unique academic pursuits, extracurricular activities, and enriching community service projects.
