Education is the cornerstone of society, empowering individuals with knowledge, skills, and character. However, the impact of education is significantly enhanced when it not only imparts academic excellence but also integrates moral and spiritual values, as observed at Hidayah Academy. Rooted in Islamic principles, our academy is a vibrant private institution that blends high-quality secular education with foundational Islamic teachings.
According to the Council for American Private Education, as of 2019, private schools accounted for 24 percent of the nation’s schools and enrolled 10 percent of all PK-12 students in the US. What sets Hidayah Academy apart within this pool is our unique approach to developing well-rounded students. By placing equal emphasis on both academic and Islamic studies, we foster a balanced Muslim-American identity, helping students excel not just acadically, but holistically.
Hidayah Academy is dedicated to providing students with opportunities to excel in all facets of life. Our graduates are testimony to this commitment – gaining admissions to prestigious institutions such as George Washington University, George Mason University, Penn State, and Howard University, among others. These achievements showcase the critical role Islamic schools play in molding future leaders and making a positive impact on society.
The benefit of Islamic education is manifold.
A research study conducted by Vanderbilt University in 2018 shows that religious education contributes to the development of social and emotional skills in children, which are crucial for leadership in today’s global economy. By integrating Islamic education with secular studies, Hidayah Academy ensures students are equipped with these skills and more – helping them to cultivate strong moral values, empathy, discipline, and a strong sense of community responsibility.
We invite you to join us on this transformative journey at Hidayah Academy. Your support is invaluable in continuing to provide this unique educational model, nurturing the next generation of leaders underpinned by faith and guided by knowledge. As we journey together, we look forward to fostering an environment where students are empowered to raise above challenges, holding high their Muslim-American identity, ready to contribute positively to society.
