Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Incarnation Academy we believe that early childhood is a crucial time to develop skills that children will carry with them into the future to be successful students in school and in life. Our goal at Incarnation Academy is to provide a child-centered academic and developmentally appropriate approach to learning. We strive to provide a safe, engaging, collaborative and creative atmosphere for growth and development. Our school is set within the faith of the Christian Church as expressed in the Episcopal tradition and as practiced at the Church of the Incarnation.
