Our History and Mission
Founded on the unwavering dedication, hard work, and generous financial support of our community, Miraj opened its doors in 1999 to only a handful of students and embarked on its mission to provide a transformative educational experience.
Our school's name, "Miraj," was chosen to reflect our vision of elevating our student body's academic and Islamic knowledge to new heights.
As our AICC President says, "Miraj has set out to educate generations that will contribute to the good of all mankind."
From early days, our mission at Miraj Islamic School remains to provide an exceptional and holistic education in a nurturing and intellectually enriching environment, so that our students may grow to become exemplary citizens who are righteous, well-rounded, and embody Islamic values.
Accreditation is a process by which an independent organization evaluates a school's educational programs, policies, and procedures to ensure they meet certain standards of quality. Miraj Islamic School received its accreditation from Cognia's Northeast Regional Office in 2017, and we strive to maintain our rigorous set of standards to preserve our accreditation.
Additionally, Miraj Islamic School is recognized by the New York City Department of Education, and our curriculum is aligned to meet and exceed New York State standards.
