The school’s vision originated from its mission and goals. Michigan Islamic Academy has been a pioneering Islamic school since its inception in 1985 and continues to be one of the most successful in Michigan. MIA offers a strong secular and religious curriculum for students in grades Pre-K through 12. Throughout the years, the school has led the way in teaching children of various languages and ethnic backgrounds. MIA continues to strive for academic excellence and character development while instilling a sense of community involvement and responsibility in its students. Through community service (200 hours required for graduation) and extra-curricular activities, MIA students are able to build leadership qualities, develop social skills, and take a proactive lead in making a difference within their community and beyond. MIA alumni have made significant contributions in schools that they have attended as well as in their places of work, excelling academically, building bridges between Muslims and people of other faiths, establishing effective communication, and contributing to the betterment of society. The rigorous program offered by MIA not only educates students academically, but provides the means for them to succeed socially, spiritually, and emotionally as well as become responsible participants in and contributors to the society in which they live.
