Islamic Academy of San Antonio


IASA received accreditation in 2011 and is currently accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement. What does this mean? It means that IASA met the standards deemed important by the SACS-CASI and that IASA has the conditions and factors at play that contribute to a quality education and operational effectiveness. IASA was found to have:

  • Stable governance, management, and leadership;
  • A coherent course of study;
  • A reliable system by which to assess students’ progress;
  • Instructors who have a clear understanding of what they aim to teach, how, and why; and access to the resources they need.

On the authority of Jurthum bin Nashir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

Verily Allah the Almighty has laid down religious obligations (fara'id), so do not neglect them. He has set boundaries, so do not overstep them. He has prohibited some things, so do not violate them; about some things He was silent, out of compassion for you, not forgetfulness, so seek not after them.
