The mission of the Al-Hijra School Board is to create unique learning opportunities based upon the understanding and practice of Islamic principles that empower all students to achieve their highest levels of personal potential and participate actively in their community.

Al-Hijra School is a full-time school that was established to provide educational services to children of Muslim families residing in the Windsor and Essex County area who wish to study Islam, Qur’an, and the Arabic language in a supportive environment.

Al-Hijra School respects the dignity of the students as well as the students’ right to an education in an Islamic school. It is operated on a non-discriminatory basis according to equal treatment and access to services without regard to race, religion, colour, or national origin.

Islamic education is an integral part of the school curriculum and is required of all students.

Our goals for our students include fostering a greater sense of self-worth, self-respect and responsibility, and making meaningful connections in the local, national, and global communities.

Al-Hijra Academy is under the umbrella of Al-Hijra Mosque. The mosque functions and has a general board that is both appointed and voted in by the Shura (Members of the community). All functions and decisions made by the General Board are brought to the Shura for discussion/consultation and information. The School Board oversees the needs of the school and is there to facilitate the school administration in bringing forth the functions of the school. If any issues are unsolvable by the School Board they report to the General Board for assistance; consequently, the School Board also reports to the General Board to keep them informed of activities that may affect the community at large. In addition, the School Board informs the Shura of the activities and decisions involving community participation.

The school is managed by the Director General along with the principal, upholding the daily activities of the school. They are constantly in consultation with each other to provide the best learning opportunities for students and management of the school.
