It has a proven operational model with high quality education with special importance on the love of Islam and excellence in Academics.
Cordoba Academy utilizes the WA State certified WAVA and CVA resources, respectively, and customizes it for primary education. Our Islamic Studies program is overseen and taught by a Spiritual Board, consisting of traditional Islamic Scholars who incorporate the globally established and certified Safar Academy curriculum.
Both programs are supplemented with extra-curricular activities such as summer camp, story times, workshops and parent engagement (to name a few), which are open to the entire community.
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.
