Parents of prospective students will have to submit a completed application, proof of age (e.g his/her birth certificate), medical records, and registration/supplies fee to the office of the Madinah Academy of Madison. New students must demonstrate sufficient readiness to enter the respective programs. They will be admitted based on their performance at an admission test. At present, the Madinah Academy of Madison does not have the resources for teaching children with learning difficulties: speech, physical or behavioral problems. Those showing special learning, speech, behavior or study habit problems may be given recommendations for help from other resources and/or asked to withdraw so that the child can get the appropriate help elsewhere.
Students are generally placed according to their chronological age at the cut off date September 1st in the year of admission.
For an academic year, students in KG level will be five years old on or before September 1st. Students who will be turning five years with the month of September will be given the standardized test to determine eligibility for KG admission. This will only be done for KG admission.
Students in Grade 1 have to be at least six years old on or before September 1st or have completed a year in a recognized kindergarten class.
Students in Grade 2 have to be at least seven years old on or before September 1st.
Students in Grade 3 have to be at least eight years old on or before September
Recognizing limitations of enrollment at the Madinah Academy, certain policies have been established to prioritize applications for admission. In general, the rule of “first come first serve” will apply until such time as an admission test will be administered.
All students transferring into Madinah Academy of Madison are admitted on a probationary status. Probationary status recognizes that the adjustment to a new situation can be difficult, and that special effort may be necessary to succeed. The student will be evaluated on an ongoing basis for a semester for academic and behavioral progress.
Parents of all new students (even if siblings are already here) must provide the following documentation:
o Registration and Emergency Forms – completed
o Immunization records.
o A birth certificate.
o A student’s most current report card is not required, but is helpful.
