Since 1994, Al Huda International has spread the message of the Qur’an to people of all ages. Six years ago, we decided to focus this effort on the future of our ummah. With one pilot class, Al Huda started Junior Kindergarten. After a year of hard work and happy results we decided to found a school based on our tradition of knowledge. Since our pilot class, we’ve been growing a year at a time, to our goal of a fully Islamic elementary school.
Set within Al Huda Institute, students at Al Huda Elementary School benefit from the environment created by hundreds of full time students in Tafsir and Hifz. When a student comes to Al Huda, they step into an environment focused on the pure pursuit of knowledge, a tradition that has defined and shaped Islam. Elementary school students get to observe — and be mentored by — those who dedicate their time fully to the pursuit of knowledge.
We believe the most foundational way to teach students Islam is not beside the rest of their subjects, but within them. Islamic Integration facilitates the education of secular subjects in an Islamic context. Our team of researchers and advisors evaluate the learning objectives outlined in the curriculum alongside our religious learning objectives and then pair them together to create a holistic learning experience.
The Montessori method, popular for it’s child-centric approach that focuses on physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth has shown great ability to mold young children from an early age. We’ve instituted an Islamic Montessori (which includes Islamic activities that fit the Montessori method) in order to develop grace, manners and autonomy from a young age. Our Montessori classroom is complete with brand new materials and professionally trained staff.
