A. Jubilee Scholastic Aptitude Test (JSAT):

Students in all programs (national and international), sit for an aptitude test that measures their
mental and cognitive abilities in the verbal, mathematical and logical areas. This test is meant to
discover their readiness to excel in the future.
The test has (100) questions and needs (135) minutes to complete.
The test parts have (6) sections: Math (sections 2 & 3)
Geometry and Visual Perception (Section 4)
Diagrammatic Reasoning (Section 6)
Language (sections 1&5)

B. Evaluation of Potential Creativity “EPoC”:
It is a test that allows creative giftedness to be measured. According to “EPoC”, creativity is defined
as, the ideas and actions that lead to an innovative and authentic product, compatible and appropriate
for the context.

The test includes verbal and graphic subtests that measure the two key modes of creative cognition:
• Divergent- exploratory thinking: “the ability to produce many, varied elements based on
a stimulus”.
• Convergent – integrative thinking: “the ability to articulate or integrate several elements
into a cohesive unit”.
The tasks are completed during two test sessions (approximately 45 minutes each).


C. Expressive Writing:

The test is conducted immediately after the EPoC test. In 20 minutes, the applicant writes a personal
statement in a paragraph of 150 words maximum, and according to specific criteria. The Expressive
Writing is evaluated based on logical thinking and descriptive writing. It can be written either in
Arabic or in English.
The personal statement is an opportunity for students to express in writing, their expectations, and
aspirations, describe future interests and goals. It also reflects the extent of the student’s interest
in joining the Jubilee School, and how they will serve their communities.

D. Personal Interview:

The Interview committee, composed of teachers and educators conducts a personal interview with
each student for the duration of 20 – 30 minutes. The interview tries to identify features of behavioral
and personal inclinations and aspirations for the future.
During the interview, students are introduced to the school’s program and life on campus. They also
get the chance to receive answers to their different inquiries regarding the school.

The school provides full or partial scholarships to a number of students in the national program,
who have passed the admission requirements, to compete for the scholarship. The continuity of the
scholarship depends on maintaining a certain average of academic performance.
Parents can apply for financial aid after the sessions of the tests are completed and the results are
The value of the scholarship granted to the student depends on the gross income of the family. The
scholarship provided by the school covers school fees and internal housing for students from the
north and south governorates, and those from outside the Kingdom, and does not include fees for
books, school uniforms and transportation.

During the summer vacation, the school holds a summer school for students who are admitted to
the Jubilee School. It aims to introduce and prepare new students to the school life, its programs,
and activities.
Students are given lessons in certain academic subjects such as: English, mathematics, computer,
and robotics, in addition to personal development skills and curricular activities that allow students
to become familiar with each other and train them how to deal with the upcoming changes.
The school provides for provincial students a full-board service in the dormitory during the school
weekdays, with return to the parents at the weekend.

The Jubilee School hosts two separate single-gender dormitories on campus, providing a safe
and comfortable residential experience with round-the-clock faculty supervision to accommodate
students from across Jordan and beyond.
For many students, the boarding school experience helps to develop their confidence and maturity
while maximizing their academic and student-life experience, with constant access to school
facilities and faculty. Each student’s room is furnished with a bed, desk, chair, closet, and nightstand.
Supervised common areas are available for students to socialize and work.

• The student is officially registered after the fees are paid and the student’s academic file
is submitted to the Admission Department.
• All admitted students must attend a Summer School of three weeks through which they
are prepared for school life and school programs.

of fees and completion of registration via the school’s electronic platform Edunation.

pay the fees on the specified dates.

15% of school alumni were granted scholarships (full & partial) based on merit, through partnerships
with national and international universities.
