Summary of Mission of the School

School History

Al-Furqan School for Teaching Quran started in Ottawa in early 2003, with nearly 200 students, ending with 165 students at the end of the school year. In 2004, the school started with 300 students, and it currently sustains 352 students in two different locations AA & West program (Abraar school) and the East program (St. Patrick’s High School). Al-Furqan School is one of the institutions run by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), working within the association’s overall plan and methodology, and adheres to its principles, regulations and instructions.

In 2004, the school was officially registered and a school board was formed. This school board energetically took responsibility for the school, with the goal of improving and following up with all aspects of the school.

In 2011, a group of five students began a new mission:  to memorize the entire Quran in two to three years in a full-time program, offered during the school day.  Simultaneously, they were taught the Ontario curriculum.  This full-time program offers a small group of children who excel in their academic studies and Quran skills a chance to memorize the entire Quran.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you think your child may be able to join this group.

We do this through helping your child reading Quran with proficiency and memorize different Juza`s from the Quran in different levels.
