Toledo Islamic Academy is a dream come true, brought about by the grace of Allah and by much hard work. In September of 1995, Toledo Islamic Academy opened its doors to the Muslim youth of Toledo and surrounding counties.
Year one began with a program from K-1 to fourth grade, and a student population totaling about 50 students. We have grown steadily since then, and now we have an enrollment of nearly two hundred students in grades Preschool through the twelfth grade. Alhamdulillah, Praise to God, a handful of dedicated individuals with a vision were spending long hours carefully planning for the establishment of the first Islamic school in the city of Toledo. This accomplishment followed years of investigation and planning by Masjid Saad Foundation in the city of Toledo, which sought to establish a high quality college preparatory curriculum for Muslim children in Toledo and its surrounding communities. In response to the educational needs of our community, the Toledo Islamic Academy has expanded and added new educational facilities to provide a higher quality of education.
The Toledo Islamic Academy is fully accredited by the Ohio Board of Education. On May 27, 1999, the Ohio State Board of Education approved our school to operate as a non-public charter school. In October of 2009, the school was awarded the AdvancEd accreditation with the highest rate of approval for 5 years. It is also a member of the Council of Islamic Schools.
