Incarnate Word Academy Strategic Planning

The foundation of our planning is the mission of IWA:

Incarnate Word Academy is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word. As a community of learners filled with the Spirit of the World-Made-Flesh, we are committed to living Gospel values and inspiring academic excellence.

"Since the Incarnate Word chooses various paths which are always merciful and true,  I will let myself be led by the Wisdom of the Incarnate Word"

We are excited to begin the process of updating the Incarnate Word Academy strategic plan. Our last plan was completed several years ago. We are now positioned to engage our entire community to build a new shared vision and to ensure a thriving future for our students, faculty & staff, parents, and community.  The process will take place during the 2019-20 academic year and you will have numerous opportunities to provide your thoughts and insights.  The strategic plan will be a five-year plan. 


It is the role of the committee to build a planning process that develops insights, researches and analyzes external and internal factors impacting IWA, engages stakeholders, and assists in the formation and alignment of goals, objectives and strategies.   


We thank you for all your continued support as we build and facilitate a strategic planning process that allows for a broad range of voices to help us in our journey.
