The Islamic Center of Naperville Al-Falah Academy serves the communities of Naperville and surrounding towns to impart knowledge of the Quran and the Hadith to our youth to nurture obedient servants of Allah (SWT) and ambassadors of the Muslim faith.

Our academic curriculum is designed with a strong focus on Quran and Islamic Studies with appropriate instruction for each grade level. Our Connections program has been developed to transform students’ book knowledge into everyday application. Regular classroom instruction is supplemented with field trips, special events, curricular competitions and guest speakers. Our interactive youth program, for our older students, includes classroom discussions on relevant teenage topics, workshops, community service, and guest speakers. Lastly, our morning elective Arabic program focuses on conversational Arabic, and we continue to serve our Special Needs community through our MUHSEN-certified Islamic learning curricula.

We also facilitate various adult education and social programs by providing classes on Parenting and hosting family social and service events.

Our dedicated team of teachers, teaching assistants, and volunteers devote their time and effort to provide an environment for all to learn, love, and live Islam!
