IQA - IANT Quranic Academy

Imam Dr. Yusuf Kavakci on Good Tree Academy

If you have the dream of making your child a Hafiz without sacrificing regular schooling, IQA is your best choice. IQA is supervised by a school committee operating under the auspices of the Islamic Association of North Texas (IANT), and is operated by a full-time administrative team. IQA is accredited by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), operates in conjunction with the school committee and administrative team to provide a valued channel for parent involvement and cooperation.

The school was founded by Dr. Yusuf Kavakci, Resident Imam of Dallas Central Mosque.

IANT Quranic Academy (IQA) is the manifestation of a long-standing dream of Dr. Yusuf Ziya Kavkci, the Imam of the Islamic Association of North Texas and founder/first Principal of IQA. His vision is to see an academy devoted to the mission of developing a new generation of American Muslim scholars who are raised within the culture of the United States while possessing knowledge of classical Islamic scholarship, and who can provide leadership for the Muslim Ummah in the 21st century. In fulfillment of this dream, Dr. Kavakci teamed up with Muhammad Al-Amin, a successful local businessman who championed the practical aspects of the effort to get such an academy up and running. Their efforts came to fruition when IQA launched operations in the fall of 2002. The Islamic Association of North Texas (IANT), a venerable organization that has seen the rise of Islam in North Texas over the past 40 years, agreed to sponsor the startup and to house the academy on the second floor of the Dallas Central Mosque. With only a handful of teachers and approximately 25 students, the hum of Quran memorization and other sounds of children and learning filled the hall. Administrative training and support was offered by Brighter Horizons Academy, (BHA), IQA′s sister school, having had its own start in the Dallas Central Mosque over a decade before. Now, in its 6th year of operation, IQA currently has nearly 40 staff members offering Quran memorization and a full academic program from kindergarten to grade ten for over 200 students. IQA has been highly recommended for accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is a member of First Amendment Schools.

Mission statement:

To develop the next generation of American Muslim scholars who possess an upright and noble character through integrated training in the religious and contemporary sciences, and who are capable of meeting the modern challenges of our diverse society through guidance, service, and leadership.
