Why Guidance Academy?
Guidance academy is an educational institute rooted in Islamic tradition and progressive learning and pedagogy to help provide families and students a unique method of education. Guidance Academy functions on the theory that learning is an integrated pattern of understanding that should challenge while not overwhelming students.
We firmly stand by our policy that instruction and reinforcement take place in the classroom, so students may be able to spend time at home with family or pursuing other activities without the worry of school looming over their heads.
Our vision is to guide generations of leaders and instill within them
1) a deep consciousness (taqwa) of Allah (SWT)
2) a strong love for His Messenger (PBUH) and the desire to follow his way, and
3) strive to serve the community.
We hope to inspire curiosity about the creation of Allah (SWT) and an eagerness to acquire knowledge and excel in both the academic and religious spheres.
The curriculum here at Guidance Academy has been developed to create leaders in both the religious and civic realms. Students will be following the Core Knowledge curriculum when it comes to standard academics, with the exception of mathematics, for which it will utilize Singapore Math. Both Core Knowledge and Singapore Math are intense, challenging curricula that utilize assessments as a means of informed instruction, rather than an end. They are also Common Core aligned.
Students will approach all components of every science, developing a complete and integrated understanding of that science as well as its relationship to Islam. While the instructional framework will be based on the selected curricula, we are confident in the qualifications and creativity of our teachers and hope to see their personal touch in all instruction.
