Pre-registration has closed. Mashaa' Allah, this is the biggest turnout yet in NJ (over 275 registered)! If you waited until now to register, shame on you!

We will have standby registration. Once all pre-registered students have checked in, we will take standby students in the order they check with their registration table. Therefore, it is essential that you check in with the table and note the time you arrived so we can maintain order during registration inshaa' Allah.
