IWA Introduces The de Matel Scholars Program

Since 1935, Incarnate Word Academy has been regarded as a leader in Catholic education in Northeast Ohio, focused on providing rigorous and challenging academic programs steeped in tradition and rooted in faith. 


The de Matel Scholars Program is available to assist families who value and appreciate Incarnate Word Academy’s approach to education but may lack the financial means necessary for a private education.  The program is available for students in kindergarten through eighth grade who demonstrate a strong commitment to academics and a willingness to work hard to achieve their God-given potential.  Full and partial tuition scholarships are available for qualified students.  


Funding for The de Matel Scholars Program is made possible through a combination of endowed scholarships at Incarnate Word Academy, Diocesan Tuition Assistance, EdChoice and EdChoice Expansion scholarships, and the Cleveland Scholarship. Financial awards are based on financial need as determined through the financial aid application process administered through FACTS.   


In order to qualify as a de Matel Scholar, students must first be accepted for enrollment at Incarnate Word Academy based on their demonstrated commitment to academics. Further, de Matel Scholars must remain students in good standing and continue to demonstrate a strong commitment to their academic development in order to qualify for assistance through the program.
