Established in 2003 by members of the ICG and Piedmont Triad Muslim community, Greensboro Islamic Academy (GIA) is the first full-time school to provide Islamic education to an ever-growing community of Muslims in the Triad Area and beyond.
The Triad consists of the three cities Greensboro, High Point, and Winston Salem and comprises approximately 1 million people.Since the school's inception many parents and individuals have given generously of their time, money and effort to overcome the obstacles in establishing and maintaining a full-time school.
With the help of many contributors and supporters, GIA has propelled itself to a fully functioning, thriving entity in the community, Alhamdulillah and Masha'Allah.
GIA is not a large overcrowded school where the students are just a number.
The size of the school allows teachers to spend more time with students one-on-one and really get to know the children as individuals.
The staff consists of 6 full-time teachers, 2 part-time Quran/Arabic teachers, one full-time Administrative Assistant and a full-time Principal/School Administrator who supervises and coordinates the day-to-day activities of the school.
