Founder’s Message

As-salam Alaikum,

As a parent living in America for the last 20 years, I can speak for many that raising our children in the West comes with many challenges. One of those challenges is the difficulty to find adequate schools where our children are nurtured both academically and spiritually. That’s why as a concerned parent, I founded the American Dara Academy. ADA is an international Islamic boarding school for boys and girls in Dakar, Senegal. Here, everyone, from the governing board to the teaching staff to the custodial personnel is striving to provide a robust holistic education that blends Qur’anic education to a flexible US Curriculum.
