YGIC Children Video

a) We recommend children to start YGIC when they are already attending 1st grade in school at the time of registration in March. Earlier they start tougher it would be for them to cope up with. The later they start the harder it is for the child and the teachers.
b) There will be a minimum of 20 classes of one hour and half each.
c) The syllabus committee for the curriculum outlines the comprehensive vision. The syllabus is planned ahead of time based on the vision set by the committee. A book / download link will be given to each student, which will have the course material outlining every class.
d) YGIC classes meet at our new building located at 2579 Lillian Lane, Beavercreek, Oh 45431.  24 Sundays a year from 10.00 AM to 11.30 AM for year 1 to Year 9 and 9:45 AM to 11:45 AM for Year 10. It is being planned, organized and conducted by all volunteers.
e) Admissions Open during March and normally closes by April.
 

Is this right for my child?

a) Do you have commitment to bring the child to 18 classes minimum ( If you are traveling we need to be informed)
b) Can you bring the child to the class by 9:45AM EST (Year 10) & 10:00AM EST (Year 1 through Year 9) and NOT IST
c) Is child your top priority and you believe the values are something they need to be taught in group atmosphere.
d) Are you willing to read emails and respond within 48 hours?
 
If your answers are UNEQUIVOCAL YES, you are at the right place
 
This is NOT the right place for people who believe
a) I will take my child when I have time.
b) I will take my child whenever we get up and are ready to leave.
c) I am taking the child because there is no other thing to do.
Do I need my child to do this for 10 years? How do I know that I need to sit with the child?  If your child cannot sit still for 30 minutes when given a task he/she does not like. If the child wants a screen to keep calm. Child is in 6th grade and have no idea of money or income and what profession to choose yet. Child cannot get up on his/ her own and be ready to go for a task. Child cannot sit and have a discussion about a subject during dinner for 30 minutes. These are symptoms the mind is not calm. We believe the mind has to be calm and should be able to analyze things. Should be able to independently decide what is right vs. wrong. Should learn to chart a career on their won. Not swayed by external pressures and form like minded friends and go on achieve greater things in life. The curriculum is designed to make the child interact with others, become a productive citizen who can enjoy life and be content with, irrespective of what they do.
Our Mindset: All the teachers here are highly accomplished professionals. They do this work as a legacy they would like to leave for the community. The group spends enormous amount of time and money for the love of the job. You can read more about the teachers HERE. The most disappointing thing for the teachers is when they hear from the parents say 'The child has a lot more activities so they do not have the time to come to the school.' We want ONLY the families who feel their top priority is the value system as they were taught and other extra curricular activity is not a substitution. The value system is taught from the young age. If you want to improve the curriculum , please give us more ideas and we will diligently work on it. But we want only the committed group of people who want to give the best of everything to our children NOT ONE IOTA LESS. After all this is our investment in our children.
Do your part: The school has become very large. An average of 2000 labor hours per year, roll behind the scene in making the school run smoothly. The only way we can keep it going is by your participation in volunteering. We will ask you to volunteer from time to time. We try not to call mothers with younger children. We put in a lot of thinking before we ask you for help. When you are called upon, please be generous.
The admission starts in March. New year classes starts in April. If you moved into town newly and you wanted to transfer the student, we can definitely assess them middle of the year to see if they can fit in. Contact us at admission@ygic.us.   
 
 Admission Process for New Students (NO DOUBLE PROMOTIONS - READ SECTION BELOW)
a) Download the form. Fill it up as word document and email it to admission@ygic.us as an attachment
b) You will get an Email confirmation of your admission status. If your child is too young you will be let known to wait till the following year. If the child is older we will ask for more information to make sure the child is successful and would enjoy the class. Some children will be wait listed so that every one gets a chance. Space is limited. This back and forth process may take a few days, but be assured we are doing everything to match the child's abilities. You are more than welcome to pick up the phone and call 937.912.9102 (Madhu Desarapu).
c) Download the class schedule and come to the first class with a check for $35/- payable to YGIC. You do not have to mail the check. At this time please bring the signed registration form.
d) You will also receive an email before the first class with instructions.

Admission Process for Year 1 Students (NO DOUBLE PROMOTIONS - READ SECTION BELOW)

a) All the parents will have to sit through the class, with the child, till the teacher advises you that the child is able to handle on their own.
b) Decision 1 - At this stage any child who is in 1st grade will be admitted. We plan to take only 15 students who are 6 1/2 years old for year 1 by the Admission date. Decision 2 - We keep 5 more vacancies for being able to give admission for the eligible students till May 30th.
c) If your child is born from the Date of Oct. 1 and on we will keep you on the waiting list. According to the Date of Birth we will inform you by seniority before the start of the first class. The older child gets the priority first. If the child is born after Dec 31st, the admission will be guaranteed for the following year.
d) We would like you to be aware that when your child comes into 8th year, the volunteering class, the child's services will be counted only if they are 13 1/2 by March 15 . In other words the children who were admitted from the waiting list, will have to wait for a few months before their service will be counted.
Why not admit the child early (NO DOUBLE PROMOTIONS - Your kid is smart-  We realize your child is only two months younger- We realize your child can read - We realize your child knows the slokas -  Grandma is home teaching all the time - We heard it all - We make the decision - Doing it over a decade - TRUST US - We have our reasons - Please abide by it  - We stick to the policies.)
1) Our goal is to give opportunity to every child and give the highest possible quality education. By admitting a child at an earlier age more attention needs to be given to the younger child. That brings down the quality of the experience for other children. It is unfair for the rest of the children.
2) You may want to be aware the earlier the child starts, there is a good possibility they are not soaking all the information in.
3) If the level ends up too high, the child starts playing in the class and feels disengaged. They start drawing and scribbling on the books. They eventually drop off the school. You will have to work harder to get them back in.
4) Our classes are matched with the age of the child all the way. If we admit the students early, the student will not be able to participate in the year 8 program required by congressional award.
5) Starting early or late, both have proven to be counter productive.
6) If your child is asked to join the next year, there is nothing wrong with the child or by no means we are against you or anyone. Please be certain, we will get them in the next year. We want the very best for your child. Please understand our situation and be cooperative. We have one person assigned to monitor the progress of your child for their entire 12 years. We take pride in saying the child spent 12 years with us. We will promote them up when necessary or even call you if we feel there in not enough progress. We value your time immensely. Thanks for entrusting your child's education with us.
