Education Rooted in Faith and Excellence

Imagine a future where Islamic values uplift not only Muslim communities but America and the world. We're making this vision a reality by establishing a top-quality Islamic school that nurtures the genius, talents, and diversity of the next generation.

The Need

Our Children Need an Islamic-Centered Education

According to the Maryland Muslim Council, our state is home to over 400,000 Muslims, yet there are only a handful of accredited private Muslim schools available. As a result, an entire generation of Muslim students has grown up without a deep awareness of the legacy of academic excellence in the African American Muslim community.

OUr Solution

Let’s Build a Space for Our Children to Flourish

With a target goal of its doors in Fall 2027, this school will be a beacon of culturally relevant and sensitive Islamic education in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. For the first time in 15 years, African American Muslims will lead an institution dedicated to fostering the growth and success of our youth.

Our curriculum would include:

  • Quranic Studies
  • Leadership Development
  • Islamic Studies
  • Financial Literacy
  • Rigorous Academic Curriculum
  • Extracurricular Sports
  • Language Immersion
  • Clubs
  • STEM
