Al Fatih Academy was started in 1998 by parents and educators to provide an opportunity for holistic development of Muslim children in our region.
Al Fatih Academy's vision is to be a model Islamic learning community that inspires a commitment to excellence in all aspects of life.
Its mission is to cultivate and nurture a thriving American Muslim identity that balances religious, academic and cultural knowledge and imparts the importance of civic involvement and charitable work.
Through an interdisciplinary and integrated programming approach, we strive to create an educational environment that unites students, teachers, family, and community to provide an exceptional learning experience.
Embedded in our philosophy is the understanding that children best realize their potential when they can work though a curriculum at their own pace.
This philosophy recognizes that the role of the school is to provide the encouragement, resources, and support for children to meet their potential and to develop and maintain high self-esteem and a positive Islamic identity.

My children have been attending Al Fatih Academy for over 5 years. The school provides an excellent Islamic education and helps students keep their American Muslim Identity. Teachers provide a warm and loving environment. Children learn through many hands on activities related to topics discussed in the classroom.
