Students will be required to submit two reference letters along with their application and decisions are made within two weeks after the interview.

  2. Who is the ideal Miraaj student?

    Young males ages 12-14 who are looking for an opportunity to learn and practice Islam. Our students want to gain a better understanding of Islam and put what they know into practice. The students come eager to memorize the Quran and start the next chapter in their spiritual journey.
