The Islamic Education School
The Islamic Education School (TIES) began over twenty-five years ago to address the emergent community need of having a safe, academically strong and religiously excellent school experience for Muslim American families. The birth of TIES began with a handful of students and has grown into hundreds of students. TIES operates under the umbrella of the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects. All TIES schools (national & international) are focused on fostering high morals & ethics, raising community leaders, providing students with high academic standards, and encouraging students to continue on to post-secondary institutions.
Relying on our association’s core values of moderation, openness, wisdom, and cooperation, we have grown over the years to into a certified childcare center, private elementary and middle school, Saturday School, and – most recently – online Arabic language and Qur’an studies for children. We also saw the birth of sister campuses across the country which include a high school program as well.
