ACCEPTED Go to this Page

If you have been accepted to iPreparatory Academy (iPrep), beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. It is very important that you accept the seat through the magnet website Parents will have until April 15th to respond/accept the school/program invitations from the first wave of notices sent on March 15th. Thereafter, parents will have one week to respond in the second wave, third wave, etc.

Upon declaring your seat, you will receive email with instructions on how to complete the registration process. Once registered, students must continue to meet standards set forth in the iPrep Academy Magnet Agreement, maintaining required levels of academic performance, attendance, and conduct. This acceptance is provisional upon successful completion of the current school year.


WHAT’S NEXT? At this time, we are awaiting notification from students who received acceptance letters. At that point, we will determine the available seats in each grade level. As needed, we will be calling waitlisted students in the order of the randomized lottery list provided to us by the district office. Please note that in previous years, iPrep has accepted and enrolled students from its waitlist. It is probable that some students will be accepted from the waitlist just prior to the start of the incoming school year of 2023-2024. Acceptance from the waitlist depends on your place in the waitlist order. In any case, you will be informed immediately of any change in your admission status.

We request that you please refrain from contacting the school to ask about your child’s waitlist number. WE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WAITLIST NUMBERS. The spaces are automatically populated once a seat becomes available. Therefore, it is not necessary to contact the school and ask for the waitlist number.

Once again, thank you for your interest iPrep Academy. We understand that this can be a stressful time, but it is important to remember that being placed on the waiting list is not a “NO.”  Your child is among a large number of highly qualified, gifted applicants whom we would love to have at our school.  If space becomes available, we will contact you via the email you provided on your child’s application and inform you of the next steps.

If you applied and accepted another Magnet Program’s invitation, your decision will not impact your
child’s position on the waiting list at this school.


Students who received a Not Eligible letter did not meet the admission criteria for your grade level.  No further action is needed. You may apply again for admission for the 2024-2025 school year when we open the Application window on. October 1, 2023. Please refer to the admission requirements the appropriate grade level.
