OUR MISSION, VISION & HISTORY
As with all other great things, our beginnings are humble. Cordoba Academy was established in 2015 and is a registered a 501c3. We started off providing extra-curricular programs for students such as Summer camps, story times at the library, and professional career development workshops. We opened our doors in September of 2017 for our co-op classes, operating out of a local masjid with limited space. In 2018, we were able to secure a building to call our own, a small church house which we converted into a school.
In 2019, for the first time, we also offered a 3-week summer school program for elementary school students to maintain their academic momentum and grow spiritually while on break from school. Courses included Quranic Studies, Islamic Studies, and English Literacy.
In 2021 our dream came true and we transitioned to a facility that accommodates the embodiment of these values in our students. This beautiful fantastic 7,058 square feet building consists of 5 large classrooms, 5+ private offices, a large kitchen, 3 bathrooms, a large conference room, private reception room, multiple storage rooms, a playground, and a full parking lot.
With a new facility able to accommodate our growing population of students and community members, we have now launched new programs such as STEM coding classes for kids, baking events, summer STEAM camps and more.

Cordoba Academy strives to empower Muslims in the acquisition of knowledge by integrating an authentic understanding of Islam in a modern cultural context. The aim is to provide an environment where the timeless practice of teaching and learning is being experienced by students through qualified educators and authentic scholarship.
Our vision is to establish an institution where the intellectual, ethical, social, physical, emotional, and most importantly, spiritual development of young American Muslims can be nurtured; producing confident, spiritual, and professional leaders who will be an asset to our society.
