Al Fatih Academy

  • 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.
