Welcome to Islamic Academy of Riverside! By coming to our website, you have chosen to learn more about our wonderful school, and we are confident that a few minutes browsing through the pages will enlighten you about the unique and exciting program we offer.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Twenty-five years ago, Islamic Academy of Riverside pioneered a new trail in the history of Islamic education by setting excellence in both academics and religious education as the primary goal.


Today, fully accredited and a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, Islamic Academy of Riverside is well established with a highly qualified, caring, and stable faculty which seeks to address the needs of their students, recognizing their special qualities and tapping into their varied interests and talents. We believe in providing a balanced curriculum that prepares our children academically and nurtures them spiritually. With this strong foundation, the school program allocates precious time to provide the additional focus on arts, technology, leadership, and service learning, in our effort to educate hearts and minds.

We invite you to take a tour of the website and, better yet, to come to the school with the whole family for a personalized tour. You may contact our Admissions Office to make such arrangements. We hope you take the step to give your children the gift of a Islamic Academy of Riverside education; it will be the best investment of your life.

In peace,


Hassan Radi
School Principal
