GENERAL ADMISSION

Daarul Uloom Islamic School is a full-time school and provides instruction from grades Pre-K1 to 12th grade. Admission is open throughout the year for KG-8th grade. Admission to 9th – 12th grade needs to be approved by DU High School Committee. Daarul Uloom Islamic School admits students of any race, gender, or religion to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to its students.  Accordingly, Daarul Uloom does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, or religion in administration of its educational policies, admissions, and programs.  DU does not have the special needs resources for specialized instruction; hence, DU will admit only students whose needs can be met.

  • Kindergarten MUST be 5 years by September 1st.
  • Students in grades Pre-K1, Pre-K2 and KG, meeting the September 1st cutoff date, will be considered first for admission. If seats are available, students between September 2nd and October 1st will be considered for admission.
  • If a seat is available, students in Pre-K1 whose DOB is after October 1st will only be admitted when the student turns 3.  The student must be completely potty trained. Also, the student will repeat Pre-K1 the following year.
  • Elementary and Middle School need to provide proof of successful earlier grade completion.

Wait List Policy

Given the fact that the number of seats available in a class may be less than the number of students applying for admission into that class, DU will begin a Waiting List for that grade.  If a seat becomes available, the parents will be notified of the available seat.  If the parents wish to enroll their child, they may do so at that time.  If they choose not to enroll their child, they may request for their child to remain on the Waiting List to ensure admission for the following year.

Application and Supporting Documents

Students will not be admitted to classes without the proper age verification, previous school records (if needed), and immunization records.  Registration forms are to be completed, signed by parents, and submitted with the non-refundable registration fees.  The following completed forms are also required: student information, health information, and tuition fees agreement.  Along with the registration, the following documents will also be required:

  • Birth certificate for each child
  • Previous school records: end of year academic record
  • Up-to-date Immunization and/Physical Health Examination Records
  • Psychological/social/developmental reports and any other relevant information if applicable
  • Allergy and/or any medical condition

Transfer Students

Students who transfer to Daarul Uloom Islamic School will be accepted in the grade they are transferring to with grade appropriate age.  The parents of transfer students must submit the request for report cards and other relevant documents from the previous school. Parents of transfer students not meeting the age-appropriate cutoff date must apply for a waiver.  The request for a waiver will be determined by documents which prove that the child is in that grade submitted at the time of application.  The student’s performance will be assessed using report card grades and standardized test scores.

The students who meet these criteria will be placed at the grade transferred from (or promoted to) and placed on a two (2) month probation period. The student will be carefully evaluated by the teacher(s) for any academic problems. Parents will be notified that the child will be placed in the appropriate grade if it is recognized that the child has no academic difficulty.
