MAYA school, provides a high quality education for our students by nurturing cognitive skills for academic and positive character growth as well as instilling in them deeply rooted Islamic values that will help them achieve success.
MAYA follows and implements the State of Michigan's Curriculum and Standards framework (GLCEs) in language arts, math, science and social studies. Our students also take the MEAP and Terra Nova tests every year. We are seeking accreditation with NCA from AdvanED, an agency which ensures high standards in education.Cultural Diversity We believe that an appreciation and awareness of diverse cultures through the exploration of history, geography, art, and foreign language is very important for establishing a well-rounded, responsible Muslim student. Qur’an We believe that recital of, interpreting, and understanding the Qur’an is essential to develop a true Islamic identity. Islamic Education Students are taught Fiqh, laws of Islam; the history of prophets and Ahlul Bayt; akhlaq, or Islamic manners; and hadith, the Prophet’s oral traditions and deeds. Arabic Language Being that Arabic is the language of the Holy Qur’an, teaching the students to speak, read, understand and write Arabic is fundamental. Prayer Time All students at MAYA have the benefit of performing group prayer (Salat Jama’ah) in the Masjid every day. This instills in students and staff a rewarding experience spiritually, socially, and emotionally. OUTREACH & PARTNERSHIPS Parent Teacher Committee (PTC) Our PTC engages in many volunteer activities such as the hot lunch program, bake sales, field trips, celebrations, etc. We also collaborate with many community organizations to foster positive partnerships.
