Full-time Islamic schools are the most recent phenomenon of the Islamic education movement in America, and represent a shift towards a more comprehensive approach towards preserving Islamic identity for the community at large, and for the children more specifically. The mission of full-time Islamic schools can be along two tracks: defensive and proactive. The defensive line strives to shield and protect the children from harmful influences that are antithetical to the Islamic system. The proactive line seeks to nurture the intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual growth of Muslim children with the hope of producing confident, competent individuals who can go out into society and contribute positively without compromising their Islamic beliefs and practices.
The Islamic Academy of South Jersey is the very first full-time Islamic School in Southern New Jersey. We are proud to open our doors to Pre-K, Kindergarten, and grades 1- 7. We intend to add a new grade level every year.
Islamic Academy of South Jersey always receives and welcomes visitors who want to learn about its programs, its students, its various activities and teaching practices and get a first hand impression. Please contact the administrator to schedule a visit.
