New location for our academy

Assalamu Alaikum

Dear Parents,

I hope your summer vacation went well and you, and the children, are as excited for the coming school year as we are. I understand there was a lot of confusion regarding our location, but I want to assure you that the CIA Board of education and the leadership of ICC was continuously pursuing the most practical solution. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
As they say: All is well that ends well.
We all have agreed to locate our school at the present ICC premises on Progress Lane (1700 Progress Lane, Charlotte, North Carolina 28205) in Charlotte. In addition to utilizing the available rooms, we are adding a few mobile units to accommodate all grades of our school. If you recall, a full time school with approximately 250 students existed at this location a few years.

We will very soon start the registration for the next year. Further information will be sent as soon as our front office is all set. Most likely, we will be able to start registration on Monday, the 7th August at 10:00 AM.
Looking forward to see you all at our 'Open House' very soon, Insha Allah.

CIA Administration.
