About Us

Islamic Academy of South Jersey (IASJ) is a non-profit, tax-exempt private school educating Pre-K to 6th grade and is recognized by the New Jersey Department of Education.

IASJ opened its door in 2014 as the first and only full-time Islamic School in Southern New Jersey. IASJ strives to produce students that can, and will InshaaAllaah, benefit future generations through the practice of good manners and the understanding of leadership. Students and teachers at our school enjoy a special bond rooted in respect and gratitude for one another.

We are constantly updating our academic curriculum, which is based on the New Jersey Department of Education standards as well as the National Curriculum Standards. This ensures that our students receive quality education to the greatest extent possible.

Currently, classes are offered for Pre-K3, Pre-K4, Kindergarten, and Grades 1 – 7th. Every year, IASJ hopes to add a new grade level until grade 12 is achieved.
