Registration Policies and Process
Students are considered for admission based on two criteria:
One main objective of Al-Noor Academy is to prepare students for college admission. A student admitted to the 9th grade must have the potential to complete all the grades successfully at Al-Noor Academy. The school administers an admission test and considers the academic achievement and performance in the student’s previous schools. To be considered for admission, students must score at least in the 50th percentile of the admission test.
Students must show evidence of an acceptable code of conduct during the immediate past year. Release forms must be signed to obtain all records from the previous school. All students are admitted provisionally for 3 months.
Individual Education Plans and 504’s
Students with Individual Education Plans (IEP) or 504 Plans may be admitted to Al-Noor Academy at the discretion of the Executive Committee. The school is not responsible for the implementation, coordination, or communication with the public school regarding the IEP or 504 Plan.
Other Admission Requests
Admission after the start of the academic year is discouraged. Students transferring from other school districts after the beginning of the academic year must also take the standardized admission test. Additional tests may be administered to ensure that the student will be able to cope with the advanced nature of instruction despite missing the first part of the school year.
Students who request a double promotion from of two grade levels must show evidence of an exceptional academic achievement and should score above the 85th percentile in the grade level they are applying to on the admission test and a written assessment. The final decision will be made by the executive committee with the recommendations from the student’s current teachers.
