About Us


The vision of the ICCI Academy is to create a nurturing environment that provides an intricate balance of education and religion. Through small class sizes, students will be immersed in the most current methodologies that utilize the universal teachings of the Qu’ran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).   The goal is to establish a solid foundation that will enhance the children’s development in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Arabic, and Islamic Studies. Educators, parents, and community members will all have a vital role in enhancing the students of the ICCI Academy. 


The ICCI Academy started out as a one room classroom with thirteen children in pre-school and kindergarten being taught by one teacher.  It was the goal of the ICCI to create a school to service the needs of our community, and provide its children with an education that surpasses the current educational standards, as well as an enhanced Qu’ranic, Islamic Studies, and Arabic curriculum.
