GENERAL ADMISSIONS POLICY
Is the Calgary Islamic School for me?
As an Islamic Private School in Calgary, CIS welcomes applications from the parents of students who understand and support our mission, vision, and values.
The Calgary Islamic School gives a fair and equal chance to all applicants who fulfill the admission requirements; dependant upon space availability. To determine admission eligibility for students transferring from another school, official report cards (showing final marks) must be submitted to show that students have successfully completed their last grade.
Applicants are advised that the School does not have the facilities to serve the educational needs of students with learning disabilities and/or social, emotional, or physical disabilities. CIS has the right to decline any candidate’s admission if the student has a history of unacceptable behavior.
Children applying from the public system are accepted on a first come first served basis with priority given to siblings applying for the first time. All new KG students get scrutinized for their social and developmental skills before they are finally accepted.
Applicants for our High School program are required to have no less than 65% in all core subjects (Math, LA, Social Studies, and Science) in addition to a clean behavioural record.
Applicants from outside the province or country may be required to write a language proficiency test. Students from public and charter Alberta schools may be exempted from writing the entrance tests if the overall averages of their final report cards are no less than 70% and are able to prove excellent behavioural records. There will be a $100 nonrefundable registration fee for the entrance exam.
