Why an Islamic School?

An Islamic School may be the right choice for your child. 

The decision of choosing a school that’s right for your child is no easy task. With so many schools offering different learning environments, teaching styles and philosophies, the experience can feel overwhelming. Muslim parents are confronted with an additional factor to consider, that is regarding what kind of Islamic education they want to provide for their child. 

The growing number of Islamic schools across the GTA shows that more parents are looking and choosing to send their child to a full-time Islamic school, many of which have long waiting lists. However, some parents remain hesitant because of the myth that sending their child to an Islamic school may compromise their child’s academic potential. That is far from the truth! Both public and Islamic schools provide the same educational program. The difference is in the Islamic environment. 

At MUA, we have designed our Islamic programs to teach the essential skills and values needed for learning to occur at a high level. While we respect and support the decision of every parent who chooses the level of Islamic education appropriate for their child, we highly encourage you to consider the following advantages of an education at MUA:

Your child will learn in an Islamic environment that is in sync with the religious and moral system at your home.

Your child’s Islamic identity and self-esteem will grow, as he/she will experience freedom in practicing what they believe, in the most comfortable manner. 

Your child will learn how to read and recite the Holy Quran, pray on time, and embody Islamic values, something which can be done on behalf of you. 

Your child will learn the Arabic language, an opportunity exclusive to Islamic schools.

Friends and community built in the school will last for a lifetime.

An education at an Islamic school helps ensure Islamic continuity, preserving Muslim heritage and values for the next generations to come.

We encourage you to consider MUA as the right choice for your child, where the whole environment is built upon Islamic fundamentals and values. Having read the many benefits of choosing an Islamic school, we hope making a wise decision has now become an easy task.
