This is a great school! My son attended KG in there. In addition to the academics, he memorized some surahs and learned about pillars of Islam, Allah named, prophets,...Thank you GIA!

I worked in GIA for 6 years. Beside NC standard course of study, this school offers Arabic Language, Qur''an, Islamic studies, and have recently started offering French Language. I always knew that the school was doing a great job because most of my students who moved to other public schools for any reasons, were placed in advanced learning classes. My daughter went to this school since kindergarten and she was able to compete in highly advanced learning schools.The community support for the school has increased so much lately, and therefore the school enrollment has been increasing continuously. For extra curricular activities the school provides programs that are designed to discipline students with moral well being and future leadership. As a private school there is a school tuition that can be paid yearly or monthly, however the school management welcomes all applicants and is willing to work out payments according to family income level. My younger daughter continues to attend GIA and we all enjoy the diversity interaction the school brings to the community.
