The ISA Islamic Studies Department welcomed guest educators from Malaysia, who were invited guests of the U.S. State Department. Our visitors wanted to discuss global standards of education and school management. They observed classes, spoke to students, teachers and administrators and took away binders of materials and resources that we wanted to share. What a wonderful international experience.
Student Peace Award
Senior Amina Nahavandi was selected by Islamic Saudi Academy to receive a 2015 Student Peace Award of Fairfax County. For thirteen years this organization has honored high school juniors and seniors who have promoted peace or worked to remove the causes of violence such as injustice, discrimination, and poverty. Amina was one of 23 recipients honored at a public reception on March 15. Congratulations Amina!
ISA was honored to host the students from Ad Fontes Christian School to discuss peace in Islam and Christianity. The conversation was lively and fruitful as students shared their personal experiences and beliefs in presentations and group discussions. What an inspiring dialogue!
