Al-Ikhlas Training Academy (ATA), is a non-profit, full-time Islamic school, established in the City of Detroit, Michigan.
Al-Ikhlas was founded in August 1991.
At that time, it was the only Islamic school in the city of Detroit that serviced Preschool through 12th grade students.
And to this date, it still is the only full-time Islamic school, in our city, that continues to serve those grades.
We aim to provide the environmental conditions conducive to the proper spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and physical growth of each student.
