- When your student is next in line on the waitlist and a spot becomes available, you will receive a phone call from I3 Academy extending a verbal offer of admission. A letter with a written offer of admission will be mailed that same day and you will have five (5) business days from the date of the letter to accept or decline the offer. You will need to complete the enrollment process (including current proof of residency). If you do not respond to the offer by 5 PM on the fifth business day after the date of the offer letter, the offer will expire and the space may be offered to the next child on the waitlist.
How long will my child remain on the waiting list?
- Your student will remain on the waitlist until s/he is offered admission to I3 Academy during the 2021- 2022 school year or until you elect to remove him/her from the waitlist. The waitlist for the 2021-2022 school year will be vacated on the last day of school in May 2021 and will not carry over to the 2022-2023 school year. Parents/guardians may resubmit an application online for the 2022-2023 school year during the open application period.
If I missed the application deadline, will the application still be available?
- Yes. Applications submitted after January 18, 2021 will be added to the end of the waitlist in the order received and not be included in the lottery process.
What if I made an error on my application and entered the wrong grade information for my child?
- Please contact our Operations Manager Lori Sills at 205-403-5777 as soon as possible to have your child’s grade corrected. After the lottery occurs, if the wrong grade information was entered, the child will be placed at the bottom of the waitlist for the correct grade for his/her respective enrollment priority.
If my child receives a seat in the lottery and an acceptance letter to attend I3 Academy, what documents are required to enroll?

What if I move during the enrollment period?
- If you move after the lottery occurs and you were seated based on your previous address:
- If the new address is in the same or higher priority than the address submitted on your application, you retain your seat and must prove residency at both addresses.
- If the new address is in the lower priority than the address submitted on your application, you forfeit your seat and are placed at the bottom of the waitlist for the enrollment priority of your new address.
