Are Ikhlas Academy’s teachers/staff paid?

No, no one at Ikhlas Academy is paid. Ikhlas Academy is run solely on a volunteer basis, however we wish to transition to paid positions in the near future to provide consistent high quality education by professionals who are paid for their efforts and time to educate our future leaders.

Are there any discounts for registering more than one child at Ikhlas Academy?

No, registration fees are a set flat rate regardless of how many students one family may enroll. However, Ikhlas Academy in conjunction with Masjid Ikhlas Finance Committee has Fee Assistance available through the Masjid’s Zakat funds.

Can my child be wait-listed and/or rejected from the school?

Ikhlas Academy reserves the right to reject students in order to comply with ALL SAFETY and BUILDING regulations. Masjid Ikhlas has strict restrictions on how many students may safely fit into one classroom. Masjid Ikhlas does NOT discriminate against race, ethnicity, gender, ideology, school adherence, community involvement, political views, and/ or background. All offenses MUST be reported to the Imam of Masjid Ikhlas via e-mail, [email protected], and/or [email protected]

Do I need to use www.Engrade.com for my children?

Yes, we believe in order to offer better schooling for your children, ALL guardians are required to use Engrade. This new software allows for easy access to teachers via e-mail, student’s grade, progress reports, etc. A valid e-mail is required to use Engrade.

How are students divided among their levels?

  1. This year we are attempting to improve the “age-group” level system by assessing students in Quran and Arabic the first day of class.  The student will then be placed either in the advanced level of their age group, or the beginner level.  If the teachers are available, we will be able to cater the classes to the student.  Islamic Studies will continue to have a strict “age-group: level system in which students are divided solely by their age group.  Middle school and High school students will also be divided by gender.
