About our School

Who We Are

We are a team of concerned parents and educators with a desire to initiate a much-needed revival of our Islamic heritage. This initiative is the establishment of a secondary school that will proffer a solution to a number of problems identified with the current state of our Ummah.

At Al-Hidaayah, a high value is placed on self-direction, personal responsibility, and self-discipline as a means for developing the self.  Our focus is not only the academic but also the spiritual and moral growth of our students.

Founding Mums

The founders of Al-Hidaayah Academy are ordinary women who have a strong passion for the upbringing of all children. Our desire is to have our children develop into successful adults who make the beauty of Islam evident in every aspect of their lives. This, we understand, can only be sustained if they interact with others who also do the same, hence the decision to build a school. 

From our consolidated wealth of experience and knowledge, you can trust us to provide the Al-Hidaayah Academy team all the support required to develop your children into trustworthy, confident, purposeful, well-behaved, and reliable young adults. With a strong school/parent partnership, we believe we can establish a good foundation of knowledge, discipline, and sound moral ethics within which we can develop a strong network to groom our upcoming leaders of tomorrow.
