Pillars Academy is the only NAEYC and WASC accredited Islamic school for children ages 3–12 in Orange County.
Our graduates have confidence in being American Muslims proud of their faith and wanting to benefit society with the knowledge and skills they acquire here.
Our staff is committed to teaching and leading every student in the educational, spiritual, social, emotional, mental, and physical aspects that build the great character of an Al-Ridah student.
Our mission is to enrich and educate students with Islamic values while providing learning experiences that are developmentally age appropriate.
We promote the growth of the whole child including academics, social skills, and emotional growth.
It is our goal to help students foster a positive identity as an American Muslim.
We arm our students with the skills necessary to succeed in tomorrow's world by integrating academics, Quranic wisdom, and ethical behavior.
We believe the combination of these fundamentals implemented into each classroom will make a positive contribution to the global community.
