Our state-of-the-art school is conveniently located at the edge of historical Princeton, midway between New York and Philadelphia. We are a diverse learning community whose staff and student body originate from varying states, countries, and continents. Students study with – and learn from – others who share a love of learning. Our school community is brought together by a mutual desire to practice and preserve core Islamic teachings within a world class educational environment.
The majority of our students are bilingual and some are multilingual. The diversity of the NUI student body gives the students a richer, deeper perspective on cultural traditions. The curriculum challenges the students to understand academic subjects within an Islamic framework. Students make a difference in their communities through service projects often initiated by students themselves. Our school strives to develop leaders who continue to have a positive impact on society.
