Assalamu Alaikum Dear Al-Furqan Academy Community!
May you and your families be in good health and have success in this dunya and akhira, Ameen.
All thanks are due to the Most High, Allah subhanahu wa ta’aalah! Alhamdulillah, it is with great pleasure that we announce that the High School program at Al-Furqan Academy (AFA) will be returning for the next school year (2022-2023) InshaAllah!
As high school is a critical step in our children’s future success, this decision was ultimately reversed due to the important role high school has on shaping the rising Muslim generation of tomorrow. Again, we *will* have grades nine through twelve. All students who are enrolled in grades eight thru eleventh will need to fill out an enrollment form for the next school year to return to AFA InshaAllah.
We are very proud of our first High School graduate cohort; many of whom are enrolled in university, currently working on their university degrees’ prerequisites, studying for various certification exams, completing Hifz and Islamic Studies Program out-of-state, working full-time, and/or volunteering their time in our new mentorship program for our middle- and high-school. Please make dua for all the
high school students that Allah guides and protects them in their journeys.
Alhamdulillah, our investments in the curriculum enhancements, in innovative digital tools, and in the high-quality instructional materials adopted have all contributed to remarkable AFA students’ performance improvements. We are proud of our students, and immensely grateful to our trailblazing teachers who transitioned into tech-enabled classrooms to revolutionize how students learn in AFA. Our educators implement a holistic approach to teaching and learning while catering to the spiritual and Islamic needs of the students. Allowing them to pray every day and attend the Friday khutbah every Friday. Thanks to the expertise of our teachers, and hard work and excellence of our students, AFA Leads! AFA is a certified school by the “lead4change” program. We welcome you to visit our campus where you can see a big banner and trophies in the school lobby for winning the 2nd and 3rd place, in addition to the scholarships donated to the school, in 2020 and 2021 “Leadership Skills” national competition.
Our school is buzzing with events, including the recent Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Quran Competition, Art Competition, and Soccer and Frisbee Tournaments. Please visit the AFA’s website for photos of the events. Our newly elected PTA officers will be reaching out to you soon with upcoming events and festivities, as well as channels to make suggestions, volunteer, and contribute to the school. With the help of the AFA community, we will continue working on addressing any issues we face and that will InshaAllah take the school to the next level.
If you have any additional questions or need assistance, please contact our office at (904) 645-0810. May Allah swt guide us and make us a stronger and better Muslim community, Ameen. May Allah help and allow our school to strive Islamically and academically from vpk-12th grade, Ameen.
