Oregon Islamic Academy's educational philosophy is aimed at shaping the minds and hearts of our students according to the teachings of the Holy Quran and the tradition of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Oregon Islamic Academy presents a new and comprehensive outlook into holistic Islamic Education in a nurturing, compassionate and loving environment. Our mission will be achieved through educational excellence within a healthy learning environment, intimate adherence to Islamic practices, and strong collaboration with positive interaction among school, students, parents, and community.
Oregon Islamic Academy utilizes the curriculum line offered by McGraw-Hill and Glencoe for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. For Arabic and Islamic Studies, we use resources and curricula by IQRA International, and the Islamic Services Foundation.
In order to create a comprehensive program that fulfills our Islamic philosophy, purpose, goals, and mission,the Islamic School of MET has the following objectives:
- To provide active, rigorous, and comprehensive learning academic and extracurricular experiences to our students that incorporate critical thinking, analytical reasoning, and problem solving skills in the core areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Fine Arts, Social Sciences, and Physical Education in parallel with a comprehensive curriculum of Islamic Studies, Quran, and Arabic Language.
- To foster in our students a love of learning, a spirit of inquiry, and the ability to link science with Islam toward a God-centered outlook on life through a holistic exploration of His myriad signs everywhere.
- To produce moral, ethical, and caring young men and women who take pride in their American Muslim identity and have a strong commitment to education, civic engagement, community service, strive to excel in all of their endeavors, and love and respect people of other faiths and our human family at large.
