- To help our students develop strong, positive Islamic identities.
- To impart to our students a basic foundation in the fundamental teachings of Islam. This includes but is not limited to Quran, Seerah, History and analysis of current events from an Islamic perspective.
- To create a place where Muslim children can build friendships – sometimes lifelong – with other young Muslims.
