We are very proud of your hard work and dedication to your academics, keep up the good work. If you fell short of the Honor Roll mark there are still 3 Quarters remaining. If this is a priority for you, I am confident you will achieve your goal. Follow the link below to see the Honor Roll list:
Over the past two weeks I have been encouraging our students to become more involved in our campus life. Please speak to your children and ask them which clubs/groups they are members of the year. Remind them that all students are to be involved in at least two clubs/groups. When everyone in involved on campus we are a stronger community!
Student Council sponsored the 1st Blood Drive of the 2016-2017 school year this past Friday. The goal was to obtain 40 donations. One whole blood donation can save up to 3 lives. Patients are always in need of this life saving resource, the need is ongoing every day. We are happy to report that our blood drive on October 21, 2017 resulted in 43 lifesaving products that will help save 129 lives. THANK YOU! We are already looking forward to our next blood drive which will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. Mark your calendars.

In this program, selected high school juniors and seniors may earn up to 30 hours of college credit while completing the requirements for high school graduation. The program grants dual credit for courses that have counterparts at the high school level. Students are eligible for any course available to an entering University freshman. As in the case of other University students, exceptions to prerequisites are handled on an individual basis. All connection courses are taught by the University of the Incarnate Word faculty with the same syllabus, same textbook, and same rigor as any other section taught on the campus and filled with other University students.
The Brainpower Connection is a widening circle of support, influence, and collegiality established when five different institutions - their faculties and students - connect to share their brainpower. Shared vision, shared faculties, and shared facilities help break down the walls that traditionally separate high schools and universities.
