We believe in
Our vision is to create the future leaders of society. We do this by implementing several key strategies based on the Prophetic model:
Provide leadership opportunities: We create leadership opportunities for students by organizing events, student-led projects, and other extracurricular activities. By taking on leadership roles in these activities, students can develop skills such as decision-making, communication, problem-solving, and teamwork.
Foster a growth mindset: We help students develop a growth mindset, which is the belief that one's abilities can be developed through hard work and dedication. By promoting a growth mindset, we can encourage students to embrace challenges and take risks, which can help them develop leadership skills.
Encourage self-reflection: We encourage students to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their values and goals. By helping students develop a deeper understanding of themselves, we can empower them to become more effective leaders.
Provide mentorship and coaching: We provide mentorship and coaching to students who show leadership potential. By connecting students with mentors who can offer guidance and support, we can help them develop their leadership skills.
Create a culture of collaboration: We create a culture of collaboration by emphasizing the importance of teamwork and encouraging students to work together on projects and activities. By fostering a collaborative environment, we can help students develop the skills they need to lead teams and work effectively with others.
Emphasize social and emotional learning: We emphasize social and emotional learning by teaching students skills such as empathy, self-awareness, and emotional regulation. By helping students develop these skills, we can prepare them to be effective leaders who can understand and connect with others.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Our Islamic Studies program is overseen and taught by a Spiritual Board, consisting of traditional Muslim 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.
