In 1869, the Catholic organization Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word came to San Antonio where they established several hospitals, schools and other necessary institutions. One of those projects resulted in the foundation of the Academy of the Incarnate Word in 1881 by provision of the Texas State Legislature. Several years later, the school added college classes to its curriculum and changed its name to the College and Academy of the Incarnate Word. In 1996, the school added a graduate division - becoming a full-fledged university.
