  • Al Aqsa Islamic Academy reviewed

    Al-Aqsa Islamic Academy was a very important aspect of my life which helped me grow and develop into a young Muslim woman. My experience there as a former student, is one to cherish and remember. It is a great memory as it was an Islamic environment with loving, caring, and nurturing friends, teachers and staff. I'd highly recommend it because there are wonderful teachers here who are very supportive for the students.
