Allow me to share a little about our Islamic school with you. We are a college preparatory school dedicated to educating PreK through 12th-grade students. Aside from the North Carolina Common Core curriculum, the institution also provides Quran, Arabic, and Islamic Studies classes, extracurricular activities, Islamic counseling, physical education, daily prayers, and periodic festivals and celebrations.

My Commitment To Excellence At Our Islamic School

I’m delighted to be a part of such an incredible group of students, teachers, parents, and board members.  I am proud of our school’s accomplishments and am dedicated to continuing to provide support for parents, employees, and students.

I invite you to join our school community and help us to nurture our students. I look forward to collaborating with you and your children.

Promoting Partnership With Parents For Success

I consider my parents to be vital partners in the delivery of educational and spiritual experiences that are meaningful to students. I invite you to get involved with the Academy’s initiatives and events. There are a number of options for assisting your children, such as volunteering, attending the PTO, or participating in one of our many school programs.

We understand everyone leads busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, parents who volunteer at their children’s schools send a powerful message that they value their child’s education. There are many ways to get involved, and we appreciate any amount of time you can give.

Contributing to 25 Yrs Of Academic Excellence

Charlotte Islamic Academy has a quarter-century-long tradition of fostering self-expression and community involvement through Islam. We encourage students to achieve a balance between both academics and Islamic studies. This allows them to develop study habits that will help them maintain high standards in both areas.

We’ve graduated many members of this community who have gone on to pursue and obtain college degrees in such areas as;

  • Psychology
  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Science in Biology
  • Science in Mathematics
  • Physician Assistants and many other areas of study.

With that being said, I’d want to emphasize that as Principal of Charlotte Islamic Academy, my mission is to provide our students with the tools they need to thrive. I will work to foster a learning and development-oriented environment that contributes to optimal student success.

With the support of my team, I am committed to helping students develop their full potential by nurturing their love for learning and personal development.  We will continue to strive to provide an environment where every student feels known, valued, and inspired to achieve success in both core academics and Islamic studies.

Please contact me at any time if you have a suggestion, question, concern, or just a good story to share!
