AES Admission Policies and Procedures
At AES, admission preference is given to Ahmadi students due to limited space availability. The maximum number of enrolments per class varies depending on the size of the classroom. In the event that the number of applications exceeds the maximum available spots for a given class, admission will be based on a random selection process. To ensure fairness, a computer-based random generator will be used to determine which applicants will receive an offer of admission.
Procedure for Admission in Grade 1
Age to Apply in Grade 1
The minimum age requirement for admission to Grade 1 at AES is five years old, turning six by December in the year of entry. However, in exceptional cases, a seven-year-old student who is currently in Grade 2 may also be allowed to apply for admission to Grade 1, subject to a proper review of the case.
Enrollment in Grades 2 to 8
For applicants who apply for Grades 2 to 8, their names will be placed on the waiting list, and they will only be contacted when a spot becomes available in the grade they applied for. Priority consideration will be given to applicants on the waiting list who have a sibling already enrolled in the school.
Required Documents Upon the Offer of Admission
To confirm admission at AES, the following documents are required for enrollment:
Factors Affecting Decision to Offer Admissions Admission of a Student
Due to the absence of a Special Needs Education Program at AES and for the best interest of the applicant, students with special needs as communicated by their parents cannot be offered admission, as AES cannot fulfill or support their needs. Furthermore, if a classroom teacher determines that a student enrolled in AES requires specialized or individualized support, the parents will be required to transfer the student to a public school that can provide the necessary support.
Admission of a Non-Resident
Please note that the school’s admission policy does not allow for the acceptance of visiting students or individuals without legal status.
Re-admission of Previous AES Students
If former AES students wish to re-enroll and a vacancy is available, they will need to complete the entire admission process again. However, those students who transfer to Hifz schools and complete their program will be granted re-admission to AES.
School and Admission Fees
The following fees are to be paid at the time of enrollment:
One-time Registration Fee: $100
First Month’s Tuition Fee: $200
First Month’ School Bus Fee (if applicable): $150
NOTE: all Waqfeen students are required to pay the fees. However, they may apply for a fee reimbursement through National Markaz.
* Many families would still like to pay for their third or fourth child as they wish to support the AES project.
NOTE: If a family is facing any financial hardship, let them know that they can contact National Ta`lim Office for bursaries that are available through auxiliaries.
School Bus Policy
Bus transportation is available for AES students, and they are given priority for seats. It is expected that all students who use the bus will behave in a safe and respectful manner and follow the instructions of the driver and AES. If a student repeatedly misbehaves on the bus despite warnings, their bus privileges may be revoked.
