Academic Advising

Academic Advising points students to success in three key aspects.

Islamically:

MIA teaches Islamic Studies, Arabic and Quran in an Islamic atmosphere. These classes are presented as the foundation for all other knowledge. All classes, including Math and Science are taught from an Islamic perspective. Respect is a core value, Islamic manners are part of everyday life, and all students are encouraged to reach their full potential.

Students learn caring and leadership skills through community service (200 hours is required), giving back to the community as Muslims, representing Islam to the greater community in south eastern Michigan.

Educationally:

MIA students are encouraged to strive for academic sucess; challenging courses including Honors and AP classes offer many opportunities. Staff expectations give the students a reason to aim high and the tools to help them do so. Professional and peer tutoring are both available.

Curricula that students are exposed to in core subjects as well as special classes, provide critical thinking activities, inquiry learning experiences and challenging content. Academic sucess is recognized in both the Honor Roll and Principal’s List as well as the National Honor Society. Click for a detailed list of CURRICULA

Personally:

Growth as an individual is an essential part of the journey. Students learn study skills, time management, and responsible stewardship. Student organizations at MIA range from service clubs to Honor Societies, from the elected Student Government Organization to sports teams, from Model United Nations to the Health Club. Community service provides numerous options for students to take on leadership roles, to give dawah to Non-Muslims and to strengthen their Muslim identity.
