Al Aqsa Islamic Academy does not discriminate on the basis of color, ethnicity, gender, or religion for enrollment. The school offers an outstanding opportunity for students with the ability and willingness to benefit from an academically intensive school program within an Islamic environment. The curriculum and other activities combine the best training in core subject areas with the practice of Islam; so that our students can grow up to be conscientious Muslims. The Academy requires all its students to take all core courses including Islamic education and Quranic reading.
The Academy is not equipped for teaching students that might need special education or might have behavior problems. Students in need of special care are referred by parents or school personnel to the local public school district.
