Our Objectives

  1. Our educational efforts are aimed at shaping the minds and hearts of our students according to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the blessed Prophet Muhammad. Toward this end, students are gradually introduced to the Holy Qur’an, Hadith, Seerah, Fiqh, the lives of the Sahabah, and the lives of the greatest religious, scholarly and historical figures from Islamic history. In addition, all students learn to perform their salat in jama’ah (congregation).
  2. The teaching of Arabic is an integral part of the curriculum at the Academy. It opens pathways to a deeper understanding of the Holy Qur’an, creates a deeper sense of community among Muslims in the United States, and strengthens the spiritual bonds within the Muslim Ummah.
  3. Our commitment to an Islamic education complements and strengthens our resolve to provide the best education to our students in mathematics, sciences, languages, humanities and business. We are committed to creating a curriculum that maintains an appropriate balance among its different components, uses the best resources, texts and tools available, and draws upon the most effective teaching methods. We seek to create in our students a love of learning, a spirit of inquiry, and a habit of reflection, so that their education can help them to explore the myriad ayaats (signs) of Allah in the universe and within themselves.
  4. The teachers and school staff are custodians of our students. Therefore, we consider it imperative that they combine the highest proficiency in their fields of knowledge with the character and outlook that the Academy seeks to create in its students.
  5. Islam teaches us to distinguish between the truth and falsehood; but at the same time, urges tolerance toward those who practice other faiths. We teach our students to learn to interact effectively with people who follow other faiths, to tolerate differences of opinion within their own community, and to keep their minds receptive to knowledge from all sources.
  6. The recreational activities at the Academy also reflect Islamic values and traditions. Students are taught recitation of the Qur’an and offered recreational activities such as Qiyam and sports over the weekend.
