Due to the limited space available at AES, preference is given only to Ahmadi students for admissions. Presently, the enrollment number per class is limited to 25. If the number of applications exceeds the maximum available spots, each application will be evaluated on its merits as determined by the admission committee. The school’s admission committee is comprised of the Principal and at least two staff members.
The minimum age to apply for admission at AES in Grade 1 is five turning six by December in the year of entry. However, upon a proper review of the case, a seven-year-old student (a Grade 2 student) will also be allowed to apply for admission in Grade 1.
The names of the applicants who apply for Grades 2 to 8 will be placed on the waiting list and will only be contacted when a spot becomes available in the grade they applied for.
If a spot becomes available, candidates will be chosen from the top of the waiting list for the entrance test. No preference will be given to any candidate further down in the waiting list unless an applicant has a sibling enrolled in the school.
Upon successfully passing the entrance test, admission will be offered to the selected candidates.
The following documents are required for enrollment to confirm admission at AES.
Due to the absence of a Special Needs Education Program at AES and for the applicant’s best interest, students with identified/diagnosed special needs as communicated by their parents can not be offered admission, as AES cannot fulfill or support their needs.
Visiting students or those without legal status will not be granted admission into the school.
If previous students of AES wish to re-enroll and a vacant spot is available, they must undergo the entire admission process again. Those students who move to Hifz schools will be given re-admission to AES after completing their Hifz program.
The following fees are to be paid at the time of enrollment:
Registration Fee: $100 (paid once upon registration)
First Month’s Tuition Fee: $200
School Bus (if applicable): $100
NOTE: Effective September 1st, 2022 (i.e. new academic year) all Waqfeen students will be required to pay the Fees. They may apply for a fee reimbursed to 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.
The bussing is provided for students of AES and students will be given priority. All those who take the bus are expected to behave in a safe and respectful manner and follow all instructions provided by the bus driver / AES.
Provided there is space available on the bus, staff are permitted to use the bus as well. Staff will be required to pay the bus fee if they choose to use the bus. If not spot is available, staff members will be required to arrange their own transportation.
