Criteria and Procedures

Admissions Procedures

We believe that every child has the right to a quality education that supports physical, emotional, social, behavioural and academic development. To that extent, we will admit students to whom we can provide the support and guidance to be successful within the school and wider community. To further our inclusive practices, in the 2021-2022 school year, IAA is accepting a limited number of new students in Pre-K to Grade 3 with identified learning support needs. Parents are strongly encouraged to share their child's needs in order to assist the school with putting strategies for success in place.

IAA accepts students from age 3 (Pre-K) to 17 (Grade 12), provided that they have successfully completed all stages of the admissions process. Admission is contingent on availability, evaluation of application and required documentation and screening results.

a)  Application:

Applications must be submitted using IAA's Online Application Portal, which can be accessed via the link below:

IAA Online Application Portal

Required documentation (e.g. official school report cards for the last two academic years) must be submitted with the application.  Application fees are non-refundable and must be settled with the application.

Depending on the grade the student is applying for and/or data available on report cards, student's current/previous school will be asked to fill confidential reference forms and to submit them directly to Admissions.

A representative from Admissions will organise a meeting with the parents/ guardians (either in-person or virtually) to answer any questions and to guide them through the application process.

b)  Screening:

Prospective students are invited for screening once available spots have been confirmed and applications have been evaluated by the Admissions Committee.  Screening includes Early Years interviews (Pre-K to KG2), written tests and interviews (G1 to G3) and online placement tests followed by interviews (G4 -G12). Screening fees must be settled prior to screening and are non-refundable.

c)  Placement Offer:

Once offered a place, registration and school fees must be settled by the due date.

Mid-Year Entry

Whilst it is preferred that students enrol at the beginning of the school year, IAA recognises that sometimes students may need mid-year admittance. This is usually reserved for international placements and is contingent on availability and successful completion of the admissions process.

Fees

Fees are subject to change and require Board approval. Fees for the 2021/2022 academic year will be available on our website in mid-December. Registration and school fees are non-refundable.

Tours & Information Sessions

Information Sessions are usually held in November of the preceding academic year. These include information on curriculum and a school tour. Tours are usually conducted by the Deputies of Primary/Secondary and last approximately one and a half hours. Student leaders are available to answer questions as well.

As a general practice, non-scheduled visits/tours are not conducted, as these interrupt the daily routine of the students. IAA, however, realizes that situations occur whereby families may be unable to attend scheduled Information Sessions. In some cases, such as families visiting from overseas and who are on tight schedules, tours may be arranged. These, however, must be booked in advance.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tours and information sessions have been suspended until further notice. To schedule a virtual meeting with the admissions team, please contact admissions@iaa.edu.jo.
