Message from the Board of Directors

All praises are due to Allah. We praise Him. We seek help from Him. Indeed, we seek His forgiveness. We seek Allah’s refuge from the evils of ourselves and from the evils of our handiwork. Whoever Allah guides is rightly guided and none can misguide. But whoever Allah leaves unguided, no one can guide.

I start by extending to you the noblest of all greetings As-salaamu alaykum. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you.

I-Scholars International Academy is an educational institution with a humble beginning.  It Started with a few Scholars (as our Students are statutory addressed), but by Allah will, it has become a citadel of learning and it is growing and progressing.

The School was founded in the year 2006 to provide students with excellent academic programs in a nurturing Islamic environment with close student-teacher relationship that prepares students to succeed emotionally, intellectually and academically.

A time marked the beginning of a creative, social, and emotional development, that is characterized by a lifelong love for learning in an Islamic environment. Every day is seen as an opportunity to move closer to the noble dream. We sought to provide qualitative education at all levels to meet the peculiar demand of Muslims yearning patiently for a glorious consistent change.

Our co-education school has boarding facilities for both genders. It is our dream that in the near future I-Scholars International University would be a reality in the near future.

I pray that Almighty Allah (SWT) reward you abundantly, To you all I say JazakALLAH Khairan.

Dr. Saheed Alimi, Chairman Board of Directors

About Us

I Scholars International Academy is one of the foremost faith-based school established in Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. It was established in 2006, with an experiment of the system of education proposed to five close family friends, whose kids ranged between and two and three, it formally registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission and commenced services to the public for its Creche, a Pre Nursery(1&2) and Nursery(1&2) in September 2007, with about 11 scholars, then progressed to have its Primary classes(Grades1 to 6) earning its accreditation to run a primary and secondary school in 2010, over the years till present the school has established its secondary classes and preparing for its first set of graduands by year 2017 insha Allah.

We offer children the opportunity to learn through play in a stimulating and nurturing environment, which in turn gives the parents the opportunity to work or train.

Today the school now has a secondary with boarding facility to cater for students. The school’s operations and facilities are gender-based to avoid unnecessary free mixing of genders to promote morality and sense of honour and bashfulness in our scholars.

Since inception, the school has graduated three sets of secondary school students who are now in various universities around the world studying and excelling in their various chosen fields.

The vision of the founders is developing Muslim children into erudite scholars grounded in all spheres of knowledge and capable of leading the world in the light of the Qur’an and Sunnah.

Quality education that qualifies our scholars for admission anywhere in the world, and a broad understanding of Islam and other faiths, as well as proficiency in International languages like Arabic, English and French languages are part of what we offer.

Our educational system is practical-based and we place importance to Islamic moral ethics, while not overlooking international standards and best practices. This is ultimately geared towards them pursuing a career in life without losing focus of earning the pleasure of Allah.

Our achievements can be seen through rapid improvements in the education we provide.
