ABOUT ILM ACADEMY
ILM Academy students shine every day, whether in their behavior or academics. One measure of that success is in the standardized testing results. As a school, we believe that authentic assessment of student achievement is measured on a daily basis through a variety of activities over an extended period of time and not by a single test administered on a single day, however, standardized tests do provide a benchmark against which to measure the progress of the students and the school. Results from the Stanford Achievement Test and Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test show that ILM Academy students score well above their peers nationwide across grade levels.
ILM Academy is committed to providing an education of the highest academic caliber implementing sound educational theory and practice that will enable our children to become leaders in a new, globalized society. Rooted in strong Islamic values, students will strengthen and maintain their Islamic identity while recognizing the diversity inherent in the world around them. Through a challenging and diverse curriculum that integrates all disciplines in an Islamic environment, students will develop the leadership potential and balanced character needed to face the challenges that lie ahead.
ILM Academy promotes academic excellence and Islamic values in a nurturing environment that empowers students to reach their highest academic potential while preparing them to become leaders in the service of their families, their communities, and God.
ILM Academy students have an incredible amount of confidence. Their demeanor and behavior is very respectful, and very rarely have we had any discipline issues. Our students are academically focused, and our goal is to help instill good moral character. It is a very inclusive community here at ILM Academy. Each student has a very vibrant personality, and they treat each other like a close-knit family despite any difference in their age, grade, or gender.
Measures of Academic Progress(MAP)Test- 2015
The graph below shows how ILM Academy students compared to other students nationwide in both reading and math at both the winter and spring administrations of the MAP test. The MAP test does not give a grade level equivalency, but rather a raw score (called a RIT score) that they compare to national norms of students of the same grade level nationwide taking the test in the same time period.

Our remarkable alumni are a vital component of our school. We are sincerely proud of all our alums and revere their phenomenal confidence. We are proud to say that 100% of our alumni are in Advanced Placement and/or honors courses in their high schools. Some of whom are attending private, magnet, and charter schools maintaining positions in the top 20% of their class. ILM Academy Alumni reflect confidence in practicing Islam among their non-Muslim peers as well as confidence in their identity and knowledge about Islam to answer questions and have conversations about Islam with their peers.
I truly believe that Ilm Academy’s curriculum and Islamic studies prepared me to for success in high school. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I highly recommend Ilm Academy.
