For 30+ years, Bright Horizon Academy/Islamic School of San Diego has been a pioneer of Islamic Education in the greater San Diego area. As members of the Islamic community, we know the importance of providing a strong educational foundation for our children. An Islamic school not only helps students excel academically, but also instills in them the values and teachings of Islam. However, running a school is not cheap and we often rely on the generosity of our community to help keep our doors open. That is why we are reaching out to ask for your support.

The school has many new initiatives to take the school to the next level inshaAllah.

  • We have added 12th Grade in this school year to become the first TK-12th grade Islamic School in the county.
  • We have created and started execution of plans for further expansion at the Allied Gardens Campus which will meet the needs for greater number of students
  • We are completely accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) which assures our school community that the school’s purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable educational program and that it is a trustworthy institution for student learning.
  • We are introducing multiple sections for multiple grades to ensure that we can meet the community needs and eliminate the waitlists.
  • We have created a new administration structure on both of our campuses to have best in class academics and operations. We continue to add competent and highly professional and trained teachers to our BHA team as we continue to grow.
  • We plan to grow the student population beyond 300 students inshaAllah.
  • We have initiated various committees focused on academics, student environment, high school and growth.

Our yearly banquet is the only major fundraising event for the school and with the Grace of Allah (SWT) and the support of generous donors, we hope to collect the needed funds during this year’s fundraiser to secure the required expenditures. Every donation, no matter the size, will make a difference in the lives of our students. Your contribution will help us provide quality education and a safe and welcoming environment for our children to learn and grow. Please consider making a donation to our Islamic school and help us continue to provide a valuable service to our community. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
