Admission

The Islamic Academy does not discriminate on the basis of color, ethnicity, gender, or religion for enrollment. The school offers an outstanding opportunity for students with the ability and willingness to benefit from an academically intensive school program within an Islamic environment.

The curriculum and other activities combine the best training in core subject areas with the practice of Islam; so that our students can grow up to be conscientious Muslims.

The Academy requires all its students to take all core courses including Islamic education and Qur’anic reading.
The admission committee takes the following factors into consideration when reviewing a student’s application for admission: previous grades, standardized test scores, character, available space in class, and the potential of parents involvement in future school activities.
