The Muslim community of Redlands has been organizing an Islamic Sunday School since 2007. With the grace of Allah (SWT) the project has evolved into a community operated institution. It is managed by a non-profit organization called the “Peace Academy”.
The School is located at ICCR 26830, Beaumont Ave., Redlands, CA 92373. The school starts at 9:00 am on Sunday morning and ends at noon after the jamma’a for Salat-ul-Thuhr. The school has KG through 9th grade. The age range is from 5 to 16 years. The mode of instruction is lively and fun, making it a positive experience. We seek to provide good role models and an opportunity for developing Muslim peer groups. The goal is to generate pride in Islam leading to incorporation of Islamic ideals in the lives of our students.
