Why Al-Taqwa?

Al-Taqwa Secondary School was established for the Canadian Muslim teenager in mind. Al-Taqwa Secondary School is inspected and issued a BSID number by the Ontario Ministry of Educationas a private school and the school has the authority to grant credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Since the beginning in September 2002, we aimed to create a Canadian Islamic Secondary School exceeding the most current provincial curriculum, but went beyond to provide its students a broadened horizon with an Islamic environment. With a small teacher to student ratio the emphasis is focused solely on the student. Al-Taqwa is a place where students can be themselves, practice and enhance their faith, excel in academics, and prepare for a 100% acceptance in universities and colleges- and of course, have a great time! Who said you can’t do it all?

Believe, achieve and lead in Al-Taqwa Secondary School.

When the best of both worlds meet, a true star can shine. Experience the difference at Al-Taqwa!


The Islamic Educational Foundation of Canada was founded in September 2000 by establishing Al Taqwa Islamic School in London Ontario, Canada. Al-Taqwa started with only 4 students, up to the fourth grade and grew by the end of the year to 40 students. The following year, Al-Taqwa opened from JK to Grade 8 and the enrolment grew beyond expectations.

In 2003, we welcomed our new campus, Al-Taqwa Secondary School, which was added to accommodate our secondary school students and since then, was accredited by the Ministry Of Education.

Later in 2014, World Class Kids Daycare was created as the first Islamic licensed daycare in London, Ontario, Canada, where toddlers and infants have a place to be in our large institution of faith, growth and learning.

Also in effort to learn our holy book, Al Furqan Center for Teaching Quran was established at Al-Taqwa Schools for teaching, memorization and understanding of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH).


"ATIS philosophy is rooted in the belief that education is a process, which encompasses all the experiences students encounter in their school."

Al-Taqwa Islamic Schools provide comprehensive academic environments that nourish every child’s unique needs. In addition, an Ontario certified curriculum with Islamic Education courses adds an element of faith and community studies.

Al-Taqwa Islamic School encourages independence and strives for excellence. Our programs are designed with professional care by providing up to date materials and textbooks to advance the knowledge of our students beyond their grade level.
