Students thrive at Isle of Wight Academy. IWA is blessed with one of the most gifted and caring faculties in the area. At IWA, teachers, thanks to the small teacher-student ratio, get to know their students very well and watch with great interest as they mature academically through the years. IWA administers achievement tests every spring, with IWA Students’ scores clustering in the low to mid seventies compared to the forties of area schools.
Nearly 100 percent of Academy graduates have gone on to top colleges and universities of their choice. Students at IWA also have the added opportunity of earning approximately 42 college credits while still in high school, thanks to dual credit and Advanced Placement offerings in history, science, foreign language, art, and English beginning in the 11th grade.
Every grading period, nearly 40 percent of all IWA students make the Honor Roll and the Headmaster’s List for their high academic achievement. Vigorous academics and a caring staff help IWA graduates succeed in whatever field they wish to pursue.
