The mission of Miraj is to provide an excellent well rounded education in a pleasant and stimulating Islamic environment. We strive for an excellent standard of education, and try our best to instill Islamic manners within our students to become exemplary citizens.
Our vision and goal is to provide academic excellence and instill it within our students. We cherish academics and are committed to nurturing the unique capabilities and talents of our students. We prepare them to be caring, responsible, and compassionate leaders of our community and the world in which we live.
Miraj was built with the dedication, hard work and financial support of our community. Over a decade ago, Miraj began its mission by opening its doors to a handful of students. Our school’s name, “Miraj,” was specifically chosen to reflect our vision of elevating our student body’s academic and Islamic knowledge. In the words of the AICC
President, “Miraj has set out to educate generations that will contribute to the good of all mankind.”
“I would like to pay tribute to Miraj Islamic School for it symbolizes respect, purity and honesty in an Islamic environment. I feel blessed and humbled to be part of the success and growth of this school. Our faculty and staff are distinguished through their expertise, professionalism, and dedication to teaching. Their unyielding will and drive motivates students to reach their fullest potential. Our students form a community of learners with a firm foundation in a broad range of subjects. May Allah pave the road to success for our children, Ameen.”
