Genesee Academy was established to provide educational services primarily to children of Muslim families residing in the Flint area and surrounding cities who wish to study Islam and the Arabic Language in a supportive environment.
Minimum standards for admission to each grade shall be applied to all student applicants. Genesee Academy is not 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 Genesee Academy.
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.
Genesee Academy respects the dignity of the students as well as the student's right to an education in a Muslim School. It is operated on a non-discriminatory basis, according equal treatment and access to services without regard to race, religion, color or national origin.
While education is provided from an Islamic perspective, children of any religion may be admitted. Islamic Education is an integral part of the school curriculum and program, and is required of all students. Where admittance is concerned, Muslim children will be given first priority because of their essential need for an Islamic Education
Early registration for new and returning students takes place in April of each year. New students may also be accepted for admission during the last week of August through the first week of September, if class size permits.
