Alfurqan School is an Islamic private elementary school, which aims to provide excellent unique learning experiences in academic and Islamic disciplines, which will help graduate Muslim students capable of demonstrating impeccable Islamic character along with advanced academic skills.  We will pursue the said mission by sincerely seeking the support of Allah, the utilization of advanced curriculum and educational means, and the employment of committed and highly qualified educators.  


Alfurqan provides its full time program during regular school hours.  The integrity of the Alfurqan School Community is built on a set of Core Values:
  • Strong Qur’anic recitation skills for all students
  • Professional excellence
  • An environment of respect and care for all
  • High standards in a school setting


Alfurqan School for Teaching Quran started in Ottawa early 2003, with nearly 200 students, ending with 165 students at the end of the school year. In 2004, the school started with 300 students, and it currently sustains 280 students. Alfurqan School is one of the institutions run by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), working within the association’s overall plan and methodology, and adheres to its principles, regulations and instructions. In 2004, the school was officially registered and a school board was formed. This school board energetically took responsibility for the school, with the goal of improving and following up with all aspects of the school. In 2011, a group of five students began a new mission:  to memorize the entire Quran in two to three years in a full-time program, offered during the school day.  Simultaneously, they were taught the Ontario curriculum.  This full time program offers a small group of children who excel in their academic studies and Quran skills a chance to memorize the entire Quran.   Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you think your child may be able to join this group.
