Al-Hamra Academy is the first full-time accredited Islamic school in New England. Our goal is to raise children with a strong intellectual and moral background. We strive to provide an environment that encourages the cognitive, spiritual, moral, emotional, and physical growth of every student. We have a well-defined, effective and evolving curriculum that follows the Massachusetts State Frameworks. We foster spiritual and moral growth in a progressive Islamic environment – an environment that instills in our students the universal values of love, compassion, peace, tolerance, equality, and justice. Our philosophy reflects our commitment to educate our students to become responsible and productive members of society through education and social partnership. Our pursuit of Excellence in Education is built on four core values, i.e., Quality, Integrity, Moderation and Teamwork.
