      What you need to know before you apply
      1. The school accepts children from 4.5 years and up to 13 years old.
      2. The school hours is Sundays 10am to 2pm.
      3. Regular attendance is mandatory. Late arrivals or unexcused absence will be monitored. If you know you won’t be able to adhere to our hours regularly, please yield the spot to other children.
      4. School Fee is $420 for your one child, $410 for a second child and $400 for each additional sibling if applicable. The books and other activity fees are included. This fee is nonrefundable after the starting day of the school.
      5. All children and parents are reminded to adhere to Islamic principles and teachings in their conduct and appearance in and outside the mosque: (i.e. dress code, ethical manners, attitude, behavior, etc).
      6. We do not offer meals, so each child is required to bring his/her daily lunch (peanut free please).
      7. Finally, our program needs committed parents for the better education for their children. Parent interaction with their kids and the school is important to maximize the benefits of the school for all. If you're looking for a daycare for your kids, this program would not fit your needs!
      The purpose of the following admission procedure is to allow a nicely organized start for the program. We want our kids to start their regular classes from day one. Before we start classes on Sept. 25th, we plan to have all teachers oriented, all students assigned to their classes, and all fees paid. Late applications or late-show really miss out on a good start, and therefore are assigned with extra fees.
      The Application
      1. Application deadline is Sunday Sept 18th, 2016 at 12:00 pm.
      2. Please fill out ALL fields of the online form and provide your active email address.
      3. If you cannot use the online form, please print and fill out the application form “word document” and bring it with you on the Registration Day.
      4. All applications submitted beyond the deadline will ONLY be considered if we still have some open spots in school classes. If so, we may ask the candidates to write an assessment test individually to see in which level they fit most. A late application fee of $20 per child will be applied to cover the extra administration work required.
      5. Applications do not guarantee a spot in the school. Enrolment is first-come first-serve and depends on the availability of teachers and sufficient students to have a class for each level.
      6. By submitting this form, you declare that you have accepted and will adhere to our regulations mentioned on this website.
      Registration Day
      Sunday September 18th, 2016 at 12:00 pm
      1. Level assessment, tuition fee payment, and parent orientation will all be carried out at this event. All parents and applying students are required to attend. Please come to the MCE mosque and proceed to the hall in the lower floor.
      2. This is our chance to meet with you. Inshaa Allaah, you will be able to obtain a more in-depth overview of the school and the curriculum, have a hand on the books that will be used, and visit the classrooms and the facilities.
      3. All Level Assessment tests will be carried on during this event. Therefore, late applications require additional arrangements and will be charged additional fees.
      4. Level assessment is exclusively the responsibility of the school and is carried out by a standardized short exam. Children can be reassessed during the first few days of classes if the teacher or the principal recommend it. At all times, parent input is naturally biased and will not be considered as a basis for the assessment.
      5. All tuition must be paid during this event for the application to be considered completed. Parents can pay the fees in cash, or by cheques payable to “Muslim Community of Edmonton (MCE) Mosque & Muslim House”, with a memo including the child name(s) for “Arabic School”. We accept up to 3 instalments in post-dated cheques.
