 General Information 
Academic Expectations 

Students are expected to maintain an appropriate academic standing throughout the school year. Such academic responsibilities such as homework, class work, assignments, projects, etc., are expected from each student and failure on behalf of the student to complete these, satisfactorily, could bring unpleasant consequences. Students are expected to maintain a grade point average of at least 2.0, which is equivalent to "C", throughout the school year. Special conferences will be called with the parent and student whenever students are failing to maintain the above stated average

School Etiquette 

Al-Ikhlas Training Academy is an Islamic institution, therefore, we expect that the behavior and mannerisms of all students comply with our Islamic value system. We place great emphasis on student conduct and behavior, at all times, and encourage the support of our parents in making sure that their children behave accordingly.

If students are to learn and grow properly, the environment must be conducive for such. Disruptive behavior cannot be tolerated under any circumstances. Students who are continuously disruptive and resistant to school policy and regulations run the risk of being expelled from school.

Uniform Dress Code

All students are required to wear school approved uniforms. Boys are required to be in uniform on the first day of school. Because girls' uniforms are to be ordered, then they are to be measured upon registration and uniforms must be placed on order at that time.

Daily Routine

Each day at ATA is meant to be one of growth and progress for our students. Therefore, students are expected to be on time and equipped with the proper tools for work and learning. Assemblies for Middle and High School students will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8:15 a.m. Assemblies for Elementary School will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:15 a.m. Special assemblies may be called at the discretion of the Principals or the Director, whenever deemed necessary.

Office Hours

The school office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The school day begins, for students, at 8:05 a.m. and ends at 3:45 p.m.. Students will be marked tardy after 8:15 a.m. and must receive a tardy pass from the office or designated hall monitor before being admitted to class. Students are to be picked up from school at 3:45 p.m., by the parent or parent designee. Students riding public transportation or walking home must leave the school campus immediately after dismissal.

As Salaamu ‘Alaikum (Peace Be Upon You)

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 Welcome to Al-Ikhlas Training Academy! We are pleased to have you and your family join us for the 2017-18 school year. As a staff, we are setting high standards for ourselves as we commit to provide a sound educational experience for our students. The knowledge and skills that they will acquire should prepare them to successfully meet the demands and complexities of the immediate and global society, InshaAllah.
As an Islamic school, we have a greater responsibility than many other educational institutions. Since our ultimate goal is to prepare our children to attain success both in this life, and in the next, it can be quite a challenging task. Nevertheless, it is one of the most rewarding! As we work very diligently to plan and prepare for the new school year, we cannot omit one crucial component that encourages student motivation and performance -the parent. Your active participation is key to the success of your child. This idea has been supported through research and observed through experience. When the home and the school work collaboratively together, it has proven to be yet another strategy that enables our children to achieve maximum success.  
We look forward to a very positive and productive partnership with you and your family this year. If you have any questions, concerns, information, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at (313) 369-0880 or via email at Also, valuable information regarding our curriculum, policies, programs, updates, resources, etc. can be found at the school website:

Thank you for allowing us to be your school of choice, and I pray that ALLAH (swt) will bless you and your family throughout the year.

Dear Parents and Students,

I would like to take this opportunity to also welcome you to school year 2016-2017, here at Al-Ikhlas Training Academy. I hope you've had a very enjoyable summer break.

Al-Ikhlas is a non-profit Islamic school dedicated to teaching Al-Islam (from the source of the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah of Rasulullah) and also teach all other necessary subjects to meet the requirements of the Michigan Board of Education. Our main objective is to shape and mold each and every student in such a way that they can be God conscious, self responsible, self reliant, knowledgeable, and loving, caring human beings.

Here at Al-Ikhlas, both parents and teachers work as a team. We try to create a beautiful environment that is conducive to the academic, social, moral, and spiritual growth of each student. Students' needs and ways of learning are always being specified. We also try to make sure each student can reach his/her highest potential. Parents are always welcome to share their ideas for improving the educational progress of our students.

Let's begin the new school year with the highest expectations and Insha Allah, we'll have a very productive and successful year.

Autism /Learning Disabilities Awareness Program
Since April was the official month for Autism Awareness , Al-Ikhlas Training Academy initiated the awareness program, this year, on ‘Autism and Learning Disabilities.’
The school displayed various posters – identifying the students, successful people on spectrum, how to help students with Autism and calming techniques.
The kindergarten students made heart cards for special needs students. All of them were given worksheets to color the Bulb –“Light it up Blue.”
Grade three and four students had ‘The special guest parent talk’ where the parent talked on Autism. It was an interactive session where students participated. The truth and myths about Autism were discussed. After that they made posters.
Middle school and High school were involved in the poster making, after the Awareness workshop. Students were more open to talk about learning challenges and Autism. They were sensitive to special needs students and were ready to help them, which in turn helps the community. The staff also participated by sensitizing their classes and had them write their personal messages on the poster’s also. Let’s…..Educate the Community!
