 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 child/ren 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 at 8:30 a.m. Assemblies for Elementary School will be held on Tuesdays at 8:30 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

I am thrilled to welcome our students, parents and staff back to school. We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families, and that now you are looking forward to a wonderful new school year. Our incredible staff of educators have been working to prepare classrooms for this new school year.

 Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we continue to face uncertainties following the global pandemic, we are aware that we will need to address unfinished learning by using an acceleration model to fill in gaps in knowledge created by the pandemic. Instruction will be focused on specialized skills and content needed to learn grade level materials while providing the appropriate tools needed to grasp concepts. Our students are kind, compassionate, and resilient. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to hold fast onto the rope of Allah swt. and be not divided to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe.

I look forward to working with you as we show the path of knowledge to my most precious gift, your children, to give them tools necessary to seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.

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 still 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, 2022-2023. 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 continue to follow the CDC and the Detroit Health Department guidelines concerning the COVID pandemic. Inshaa Allah, we will constantly assess and reassess the situation to make sure that it is safe and feasible for us to continue in-person learning.

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

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.
