Admission Procedure

Islamia College is a Muslim School for all children but not in essence a school for Muslim children. By virtue of the aforementioned the school will seek to grant admission to students who are prepared to subscribe to the tenets of the Islamic faith in an equitable manner.

The disposition, demeanour, behaviour, values and attitudes of the student should be concomitant with the ethos of the institution. Being an independent institution of learning that sustains itself on financial contributions in the form of tuition fees, the school shall admit students on the criteria provided in the Policy Statement.

  • No student shall be refused admission where the policy contravenes the Schools Act, Bill    of Rights or the Constitutional rights of such students
  • No student shall be refused admission on the grounds of being educationally or scholastically challenged as long as the School has the necessary expertise and infrastructure
