The Islamic Academy was blessed to be a recipient of the 2018-2020 PreK4SA Educational Grant to be implemented in the school over the 2018-2020 school years. It will assist in making improvements from hiring new staff, CDA certification of current staff, new technology, classroom equipment/materials, and even an outside classroom to be utilized by every grade level, Toddlers to 6th grade! We will be working closely with PreK4SA, beginnning this year, to make the Islamic Academy of San Antonio the best it can be with the following 6 goals:

Goal 1: Equitable Access To support equitable access to early learning across the City by increasing the number of accredited child development centers. 

Goal 2: Instructional Quality To improve the instructional quality in early childhood classrooms: a) By increasing the number of teachers with a Child Development Associate credential (CDA); b) through the programmatic use of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS); and c) by providing targeted professional learning aligned with the High Quality Impact Pyramid

Goal 3: Student Outcomes To improve student learning and growth along the Pre-K through third grade continuum through common assessment and student outcome data sharing. 

Goal 4: Pre-K – 3rd Alignment To align curriculum and standards from Pre-K through third grade by providing professional learning for district and program leaders. 

Goal 5: Family Engagement To support Pre-K through third grade learning by developing a welcoming environment and sense of belonging for families and communities.

Goal 6: High Quality Impact Pyramid To increase the quality components of early education programs based on the High Quality Impact Pyramid.


Classes will begin September 3rd, 2019. The school day begins promptly at 7:45 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Thursday and to 2:30 pm on Friday. Anyone arriving after 7:45 am will be considered tardy and will need to go to the front office before proceeding to the classroom with a parent or guardian for those PreK and under.

On the authority of Jurthum bin Nashir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

Verily Allah the Almighty has laid down religious obligations (fara'id), so do not neglect them. He has set boundaries, so do not overstep them. He has prohibited some things, so do not violate them; about some things He was silent, out of compassion for you, not forgetfulness, so seek not after them.
