Al-Ihsan Academy

  • Founded in 1989 by immigrant Muslims who were concerned about the fate of their children in an un-Islamic environment, Al-Ihsan Academy is a non profit educational institution established to educate children in a safe and nurturing environment where their potential can be fully developed.
  • Special care is taken to ensure that the proper balance of Islamic and Academic education is being provided at Al-Ihsan Academy.
  • Students have already become sterling examples within their local communities and are now fast becoming citizens capable of providing leadership in the millennium.
  • The goal of the school is to produce graduates who would be solidly grounded in Islam as their practical way of life in America, while pursuing studies, which will eventually help them, become qualified to compete in all levels of activities.
