Is the school accredited?

Bayaan Academy is registered in Maryland, USA, and uses a curriculum that has already been accredited. However, as an online schooling provider, we are working towards independent accreditation through the Middles States Association. Bayaan provides qualified instructors, an accredited curriculum, academic assessments, and social activities online and locally. 

Do students at Bayaan need to register as homeschooled?

It depends on the state. Generally in Maryland, since the place of instruction is at “home”, they will need to register as homeschooled with their state.

Can students transfer to a public school from Bayaan?

Yes, we have had students successfully transfer to public school.

Does Bayaan provide report cards for the students? Are the report cards accepted by public school if they need to transfer?

Yes Bayaan provides report cards for students enrolled in Live program. Yes public schools accept report cards from Bayaan.

Does Bayaan do the homeschool portfolio review?

No, but we provide all the necessary documents and information one would need to fill out the portfolio review form. Bayaan has an umbrella organization Rihla that does portfolio review for a small fee.

What if student is enrolled in full time hifz or aalim program, can they manage the academic load?

Over 50% of our students are enrolled in hifz or aalim program as well. Our teachers ensure to not overburden students with too much homework. You can expect at the most 5-6 hours of homework weekly. In Ramadan, we ensure to keep the workload lighter and last 10 days are always off.

Do students in self paced program get high school diploma?

No, it is only for those who attend live classes at Bayaan.

Can I meet my child’s teachers?

Yes! Bayaan Academy holds regular parent-teacher conferences throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to attend in-person if they reside locally. For families living farther away, conference calls are scheduled every semester by the administration.

Do students have any social interaction?

Throughout the year, Bayaan Academy organizes local field trips, social events, and family picnics. Students are also encouraged to join a variety of extra-curricular clubs, some student-led, and some teacher-led, including Math Club, Journalism Club, and Art Club.

Can I access classes at any time?

All classes should be attended live, unless you have a valid excuse. However, if you miss a class or want to revise a topic, the recordings can be accessed at any time through your individual login.

Can students take placement test before enrolling?

Yes, you must sign up for the test on the website first.

What curriculum do we follow? Is it according to MD state standards?

We follow common core standards.

What if a student enrolls from a different state? Will that state accept MD school credits?

Yes

Can students apply to universities? Do they accept diploma from Bayaan?

Yes our graduates have applied to universities and got accepted as well. A high school diploma is one of the first steps to college admission. However, college admission depends on a number of factors. These include SAT score levels, high school GPA, how competitive the program being applied for is, how competitive the college is, extra curricular activities, etc. However, we had our first graduate in 2020 who was accepted into both of her colleges of choice.

Do students in self paced program get report card?

No, it is only for those who attend live classes at Bayaan.

Can we try out the classes for a short period to assess if it works for our child?

When you register, you agree to an annual commitment. Enrolling for a trial period is not offered.

Will I receive report cards and transcripts?

Both students and parents have access to the continuous progress of the students’ work at any time. There are three terms and at the end of each term, final grades will be made available according to the academic calendar dates. Official sealed reports can be requested through the school’s administration for a nominal fee.

Do you accept transfer credits from other high schools?

Bayaan Academy will evaluate the rigor of the coursework completed and may grant appropriate credit based on their evaluation. In the case of previously homeschooled students, proof of successful portfolio review could be used to grant specific credits.

How involved do parents have to be?

One of the key factors we noticed for successful online studies is the maturity of the students. For young learners in grades in middle school, we believe parental involvement in supervising the students’ online learning experience is very important. Bayaan provides you the curriculum, the live classes, live teacher support, and the full means of communication, such as weekly progress reports being emailed to parents. However, none of that will be effective if the student is not staying on task. Every student is different. We’ve had 6th graders that always submitted work on a timely basis without any parental involvement and did wonderfully. And we’ve had 7th graders who rarely submitted any work despite parents being regularly notified. For students that are not good at working independently, we advise parents to make sure that the student’s computer or laptop is in a visible, yet quiet location in the home and that someone supervises the completion of the tasks. A daily classwork schedule is a must for all students so that they can stay on track. Lastly, admin and teachers are always available to assist you and the student in reaching success. Feel free to reach out to them for advice or discuss your concerns- academic, social, or personal. We are here for you.
