Excellence in Education Since 1994

New England's first full-time accredited Islamic school


Al-Hamra Students enjoy a robust athletics program both On-Campus and off (at our partnered facility).  On-Campus, Kyoshi (Professor) Alan 8th degree black belt, leads our newly implemented martial arts program.  Kyoshi Alan brings an extensive professional background of knowledge and expertise in teaching both adults and children self defense, karate, samurai sword, and aerobic kickboxing in the creation of the Al-Hamra specialized martial arts curriculum.

Off-Campus Sports (during school hours) are integrated into Al-Hamra's Physical Education program in partnership with our local YMCA.


Physical exercise, healthy outdoor activities and team sports are also a vibrant part of Student Life through outdoor recess/lunch.

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.
