Welcome by our Principal
Assalamu’Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarkatuhu,
At Noor Academy Sunday School, it is our objective to provide a healthy and rewarding learning environment for Muslim students. The school will meet once a week, nine months a year. If summed up, it amounts to about thirty days of classes in a year. Within this ‘short’ time we are committed to do the best to provide a sound Islamic education to your children.
Muslim children growing in the US are facing diverse challenges and conflicting pressures at schools and in friend circles. We admit parents are the main source to instill morals and values in their children. However, parents can do only so much. It is a tough job to help them balance their Islamic identity with their ‘American’ identity.
Nevertheless, it is our goal at Sunday School to help them build their Islamic identity, and we will never stop trying. We hope Noor Academy Sunday School will be able to help Muslim students appreciate and understand Islam – its rich heritage, principles, values, and teachings. We hope the School will be able to provide stepping stones for the youngsters so that they understand and accept Islam as the chosen ‘way’ of their lives. Our success will be measured not only in the moment but in years to come as our students grow up and say: “Thank you, you made a difference in my life!”
Our request to the parents – please invest in your children. They are precious!
