Enrollment for non church members occurs April - July 31 from a cumulative waiting list. If you have not completed the application process and had your interview, please do not complete the registration. We don't want you to waste your time because you will receive a denial message.
Please go to the enrollment tab to the left on the navigation bar and download our SMIC Academy brochure to see if our church school is of interest to you. The wait list request form is on the brochure.
We maintain a first-come-first-served waiting list of twenty five non-SMCC families. The wait list for the 17-18 school year is open.
The following link is to our brochure and will tell you about SMIC Academy. The wait list form is attached to the brochure. SMIC Academy brochure
Senate Bill 38 passed the Alabama legislature in the 2014 session and was signed by the governor in early April. SB 38 indicates another option for homeschooling families to teach as a private school. Please contact your local board of education for information on this option. How this was implemented by the state of Alabama is unknown to the leadership of SMICA. We suggest joining Home School Legal Defense Association http://www.hslda.org for support for this option. The Alabama page for HLSDA members has a public school withdrawal form, Notice of Intent to Homeschool form and a form for the list of children you willl have in your homeschool for your local board of education. Christian Home Education Fellowship, our state homeschool organization may also have current information about establishing a private school for your family or support group http://www.chefofalabama.org
