I3 Academy--the first charter school in Birmingham, AL--will enroll over 400 children in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Birmingham. Modeling our work on other charter networks that emphasize rigorous, student-centered learning and social-emotional growth, we will teach our students through thoughtful, inquiry-based content that helps them become engaged and passionate learners and leaders.

MARTIN | "I am ruthless about systems and meaningful collaborations that lead to student achievement. I am ruthless in insisting that all students can reach and exceed the expectations of caring adults within an environment that is at once rigorous and student-centered.”
