ILM Academy


Ilm Academy started as a collaborative brainchild of local scholars, a veteran educator, and Muslim parents in Irvington District, Fremont, who felt the pressing need for a full service Islamic school in the area. Alhamdullilah, since that moment, there has been no looking back. Ilm Academy announced 2010-11 as its first academic school year.

Beginning as K-2, an initial enrollment of seventeen children, and a staff of three teachers, the school has come a long way. For the academic year 2017-18 Ilm Academy will be operating K-8 from its new location as part of the ICF expansion project.

Ilm Academy is proud to be on the list of reasons why many out-of-state families plan their move to the bay area. The exceptional level of education provided by the school is achieved through teachers chosen not only for their qualifications but also for their dedication and zeal for working within the unique environment of an Islamic School.

Our Vision

At ILM Academy we believe in:

  • Practicing Islamic values which develop a character of honesty, integrity and responsible behavior
  • Challenging students to think critically and creatively
  • Developing the whole child – intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically
  • Preparing students to contribute constructively to a global society
  • Communicating effectively, this is essential for a cohesive school community and a positive school climate
  • Instilling learning as a life-long process
  • Inspiring excellence

ILM Academy is committed to providing a child-centered education of superior quality. Enrolling students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 for the 2017-18 school year, our objective is educating the whole child while fostering intellectual, creative, religious, social, and physical development.

We offer:

  1. A challenging curriculum,
  2. Low student to teacher ratio, and
  3. An Islamic environment through which we encourage our students to participate actively in an educational community that promotes ethical value based leadership, self-reliance and critical thinking.

Believing in the inherent strengths of a human mind, we celebrate the achievements of individual interests and personal talents of our student body.
