Al Fatih Academy (AFA) operates under the auspices of the non-profit corporation: Muslim Education Resource Council, Inc. (MERCI). This non-profit corporation was established in September 1999 for the sole purpose of establishing a full-time Islamic school in our community.  

Since its inception 25 years ago, AFA has taken an integrated approach to teaching. AFA aims to guide students through an interdisciplinary curriculum integrating math, science, language, social studies, life skills, and Islamic/religious studies.

501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Status

In 2001, MERCI gained a tax-exempt status from the federal government.  As such, donations made to Al Fatih Academy are tax deductible.
