​ADMISSIONS

Admission Policies

LUA was established to provide an educational opportunity primarily to children of Muslim families residing in the Lexington and Central Kentucky area who wish to study Islam and the Arabic Language in a supportive environment.


While education is provided from an Islamic perspective, children of any religion may be admitted. Islamic religious education for Non-Muslim students is optional.
Minimum standards for admission to each grade shall be applied to all student applicants. LUA is not yet equipped or staffed to provide services for students who have special needs or require special educational methods or systems.

 

We reserve the right to deny admission to any child whose needs we do not have the ability and/or resources to meet, or whose parents are motivated by concerns not consistent with the goals or policies of LUA. If this is determined, parents will be requested to place the child in a school elsewhere, or will be denied admission.
 

Any students experiencing extreme learning difficulties, very poor attendance, or serious behavioral problems will not be allowed to continue in the school. New students will be on probation for their first 60 days. Enrollment is not considered final until previous school records are received and reviewed.
 

LUA respects the dignity of the students as well as the student’s right to an education in an Islamic School. It is operated on a non-discriminatory basis due to race, religion, color or national origin.

Registration Procedures

 

Early registration for new and returning students takes place near the end of each year. New students may also be accepted for admission during the first 2 weeks of the school year, if class size permits.
 

Any applicant interested in registering at LUA may contact the school to receive an application and to inquire about open registration times.
 

Any applications for registration will be submitted to the LUA office along with the required fees.
Acceptance priority will be given to children currently enrolled in LUA; second to siblings of children already enrolled; then to any other interested parties.

 

The school will review all materials and documents submitted by applicants wishing to attend LUA and make recommendations for admission to the Principal/Administrator who will make the final admission decision.

An Application for Admission Form to LUA office will not be complete unless accompanied by the following (all forms can be downloaded below):

  • Transcripts and School Records - Official transcripts and school records for each year of attendance at another school.
    It is assumed that report cards/school records will indicate the student’s level of achievement, successful completion of previous grades, and ranking on nationally administered standardized achievement tests, if taken.

Minimum Age Requirements

  • Kindergarten: Students must be five years old by October 1st in order to be admitted to the Kindergarten Program. Children who would be five years old by October 31st may be admitted under the condition that their parent/guardian signs a form indicating his/her awareness that in case of transfer to public schools in Kentucky, the school may insist to enroll the child based on his/her age by August 1st

 

  • First Grade: A child must turn six years old by October 1st of the school year in which admittance is requested.

 

  • Other Grades: The usual and customary age for each grade level is considered. Also, LUA does not allow for double promotion at any grade level. However, it is the school’s policy to challenge the child to reach their highest potential.

$250.00 re-enrollment materials fee is required of each re-enrolling student.
