Houston Quran Academy And Katy Islamic Academy Are Accredited By SACS
Few words from Principal of the school Dr. Hamed Ghazali:
It is a pleasure for me to inform you that the SACS accreditation Quality-Assurance-Review (QAR) team that came to our Houston Quran Academy campus on Monday May 14th, 2012 and announced its decision to fully accredit our school from kindergarten to 12th grade, Alhamdulillah. They will send us a formal letter within a month inshaa Allah. SACS stands for Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which is a part of Advanced. It is the same organization that accredited the University of Houston as well as other famous colleges and schools. We are proud to have that honor alahmdulillah. It is worth noting that we most probably broke a record to have it done in such a short time considering the fact that the school is only three years old (only two at this location) where we had a real building.
It is a collaborative work; we would have not done it without the hard work of our dedicated teachers and volunteer parents who have been helping the school in different capacities ranging from teaching to being involved in projects of the Parent Improvement Committee to donating and helping in different capacities. I want to thank you all for your kind help, may Allah reward you all. Thanks also to community members who do not have children at our school but yet contributed even more than any parent in the school. In fact the highest financial contribution came from community members and supporters who do not have children at our school, may Allah reward them all.
This will also give us a good opportunity to pursue our efforts to improve the school, especially in the area of the curriculum for the middle and high schools inshaa Allah. From now on there are no worries about whether other schools will accept credit for courses taught at HQA or not, Alhamdulillah. Congratulations for all of you!
