The new academic session begins in early April every year. Registration Forms are available at the school office. The age criterier for registration of student for admission to the various classes is as under:

Admissions are offered in Classes Nursery to 8th only, subject to the availability of seats. The lower age limit for admission in the School is 3+ on 1st April of the year of joining the School in Class Nursery. Similarly, correlation of age and class to which admission is sought is an essential requirement.
An application for registration is the first stage of the admissions process. A registration fee must be sent along with the application so that the child's name may be registered for the year and class for which admission is sought. The fee is neither refundable nor adjustable and it is valid only for the specified academic year. Registration of a child is not a guarantee of his/her admission.
1- One recent passport size photograph of the student has to be attached.
2- The completed Registration card must be sent along with an attested photocopy of the student's Birth Certificate and the Registration Fee.
3- The Birth Certificate should be issued by the Registrar of Births and Deaths of the area in which the student was born. Affidavits, certificates from the hospital, or certificates from any other person are not accepted. The Birth Certificate should not be dated more than one year after the date of birth.
Every student registered for admission into classes V & VIIl is expected to appear for an Aptitude/Proficiency Assessment.
Particulars of these Assessments are sent by the school to parents well in advance. Registration for classes VI & VII closes on 31st July of the year preceding that in which admission is being sought. Any registration made after that day is only accepted on payment of a Late Fee.
Offers of admission are given on the basis of the results of these Assessments and depend on the number of vacancies in each class. Some preference is given to child of transferable Government officials and serving Armed Forces personnel. Preference is also given to those whose real sisters/brothers have studied or are at present studying in the School.
The student is also required to pass a medical fitness test.
The following documents are required as a part of the Admissions procedure for every student applying for admission:
1- Original Birth Certificate : The original birth certificate must be brought to the School at the time of admission. This is returned after verification. Misrepresentation or falsification of date of birth will result in cancellation of admission forthwith.

In addition, the student is required to present the last Report Card indicating promotion to the next class, as well as proof of attendance for the previous year. Until the Transfer Certificate and other documents are received by DRL Memorial Academy, the child's admission is considered as provisional.
3- Medical Certificate : All new entrants are required to produce a medical certificate certifying that they are free from any contagious or infectious disease and are otherwise physically fit to be admitted to a school.

The School offers several Scholarships each year to deserving students studying in DRL Memorial Academy.
Scholarships are available on applications received from the parents and are decided on the basis of means. Scholarships cover a substantial portion of the School fees. Parents of students aspiring to join the School in the coming year may also apply for a scholarship. Scholarships are revised annually for which fresh applications need to be submitted every year on a Performa available at the School office.
Parents of students wishing to apply for a Scholarship must request for the necessary form from the School every year.
The School feels strongly that children must learn the value of discipline. Once the parents entrust their child to our care, we expect the parents and the child to follow the rules of the School.
A student found guilty of a serious breach of discipline can be summarily expelled from the School without any liability on the part of the institution and the dues paid will not be refundable.
If during the academic session, the School authorities are complicated in any litigation either by the student or by her Parent/Guardian, the School authorities reserve the right to cancel the admission of the concerned student without any prior notice, in order to maintain discipline and to safeguard the healthy atmosphere of the School from being vitiated.
Accidents: Although the School takes all normal precautions, it does not take any responsibility for accidents or vis major.
