Gaining Admission To One Of The Best American Curriculum Schools In Sharjah
Admissions hints and tips to help your child enroll at the American School of Creative Science at Al Layyah (ASCS)

Navigating the admissions process for a new school can be frustrating for parents. We’re glad you’ve chosen one of the best American schools in Sharjah, the American School of Creative Science at Al Layyah, for your child. ASCS welcomes learners from all walks of life who are bright and dedicated.

The admissions process is fairly simple, once you’ve understood a few basic things about the school. Here at ASCS, the academic year begins in September and ends in June/July. The year consists of three terms with breaks for winter, summer and spring. The admission of your child depends upon two factors. The first is their age. The Ministry of Education supplied date of birth range determines the grade placement for your child. Second, admission also depends on the availability of spots, as we operate on a “first come, first served” basis.

You must first submit a completed application form. The Ministry of Education also requires that you submit supporting documents, including two passport-sized photos of your child, two copies of their birth certificate, and a vaccination certificate. Two copies of your child’s passport are also required, along with one copy of each parent’s passport with a current valid residence visa. If you are a UAE national, you must also submit a copy of your Family Register. Documents needed from the previous school attended by your child include an original transfer certificate, a behavior report and character reference. If the transfer certificate is from outside the UAE, it must be legalized and attested. An original school report must also be shown for the most recent full academic year completed. This report should list the results, grade, date, and year. Lastly, you must submit a non-refundable admission fee.

Once all the documentation is received, a date for an entrance exam and interview will be set. Kindergarten applicants will be invited to the school with their parents for an informal interview. For Grades 1 through 5, a computerized examination will take place. Prospective students will also be required to take a CAT4 or Cognitive Ability Test on a previously established date. If the application process is successful and your child is a fit for ASCS, we will let you know by phone or email and you will be required to come in and complete the rest of the admission formalities.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of the leading American Curriculum Schools In Sharjah.
