MUA provides a great Islamic environment for all its students. Its not just a school its a community. For me it feels like my family. I feel academically prepared for college and I have MUA to thank for that.

MUA taught me to be independent and strengthened my communication and social skills. It's one of the best experiences I've ever experienced and one that will be cherished in my heart forever.

MUA gave me a firm Islamic foundation, provided accelerated courses in secular education, and most importantly offered a great program that allows students to receive college credit courses for discounted prices.
