 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.

​Welcome Back To School Letter from Principal


 Dear Parents of Middle/High School Students

It is with great pleasure, I welcome all of our students who are transitioning from grade to grade already attending Al-Ikhlas Training Academy and the new students who have joined us.
As Principal, I want to share with you our plans for this school year. As we all know, the pandemic of CO-VID 19, challenges us to produce a curriculum and schedule that we, here at ATA, believe is the safest course for our students, your children.

Beginning September 9, 2020, we will begin the school year online. Class schedules for Middle/High School students have been prepared and will be available for parents beginning with our 1st parent meeting of the year on Wednesday, August 19th at 5:30pm. Please ask any questions you may have at this time.

Parents please register your children as soon as possible. We are in the process of assigning and distributing computers to families needing an additional computer for student use upon registration to Al-Ikhlas Training Academy.

In addition, please expect your child to receive a syllabus from each teacher and each class on the FIRST Day of class. This syllabus provides subject matter to be covered throughout the year and details expectations of student achievement. This document will be distributed through the Google Classroom.
As most students know, I am a teacher as well as a principal. So, if your child is in 9th grade, I will have them for History; if your child is in 11th grade, I will have them for Chemistry; If your child is in 12th grade, I will have them for Physics.

Again, I welcome you to a new school year at Al-Ikhlas Training Academy. Please feel free to contact me for further information at:

Sincerely, A dedicated Educator and Servant of Allah

Al-Ikhlas Training Academy

Dear Respected Parents/Guardians:

We pray that you are having a wonderful and safe summer during these very trying times. We also wish that you and your family had a joyous time during the Eidul Adha celebration. I know that this has been a very difficult year for you and your loved ones, especially because of the pandemic that we are going through. However, I’d like to thank you for your patience and continued support of our efforts to educate our children. The administration has been working extremely hard to make sure that we can offer our absolute best for the upcoming school year, 2021-2022. So, please continue to give us your support and keep us in your prayers.

As I’m sure you are aware, the health and safety of our students and staff are the greatest concerns that we are considering when we plan for the upcoming school year. Therefore, after much deliberation and weighing our options, we’ve decided to begin the 21-22 school year completely in-person, Inshaa Allah. We will constantly assess and reassess the situation to make sure that it is safe and feasible for us to resume and continue in-person learning.

Again, we thank you for your support and we look forward to another great school year.


Nadir S. Ahmad, Director

Dear Parents,

Assalamu alaikum.

I hope you and your family are safe and in good health by the mercy of Allah (s.w.t)

First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we, as a nation and community, responding to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19. I am very proud of the way our students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders responded to the demands we were faced with to protect everyone as we continued to educate our students during the most unusual of circumstances.

As you know, there continues to be concerns and questions related to how schools plan to reopen in September 2020. While we are in the business of educating, our first priority is the safety of our students, teachers and our staff. Be assured, we have been working hard to find out the best way possible to open the school. Getting the survey results from the teachers, administrators, parents, and students, we have come to a decision that we are going to open the school virtually this Fall semester ISA. We also have in mind, as soon as the COVID situation gets better and safer, we are going to educate our students in person in the school building, Insha Allah.

I encourage our parents to frequently visit the ATA website and follow our social media for up to date and accurate information. Our priority is to keep everyone safe while not making life more difficult for our parents. Each family situation is uniquely different. We fully understand your varied concerns about distance learning. Our dedicated teachers are now fully equipped with modern technology to convey the knowledge to our students. We will provide our students with collaborative teaching with Title one teachers. They are also well aware of the different needs and demands of our students. Your job is to make sure your child is attending the zoom classes and do their homework, and take the tests properly and on time. We really appreciate your help that you are showing us for the last many years as we are educating your children.

Once again, thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for all of our students and staff during these challenging times.
