    Austin Peace Academy is the best place for your child to develop morals in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. There is so much opportunity to create sincere relationships with peers and teachers. The school is truly an individualized experience without the “one-size-fits-all” approach of public education. As a recent graduate of Austin Peace Academy who will be attending university in the fall, I feel that APA successfully prepared me to enter a college setting. I would recommend this school to anyone!

    Austin Peace Academy is truly an exceptional school that offers students with a great education and an atmosphere grounded in faith. However, faith and education aren't separated, rather, it's integrated into school curriculum allowing students to draw synthesis between their faith and the world around them. Having attended multiple Islamic schools, I believe APA offers the best of both worlds by teaching students to strike a balance between their faith maintaining academic success. Additionally, the teachers are extremely passionate about their student's well-being and are more than qualified. Our debate coach, Mr. Alex Pritchard, often dedicates his Saturdays to coaching students through debate tournaments all over the Austin area. In addition to his dedication, he was named one of the top 10 debate coaches of the century across the U.S.
    Austin Peace Academy is an excellent school! I put my kids in Islamic School so they could learn Islamic values. I didn't expect that they would be given a world-class education with attentive and talented teachers. In addition to this, my kids have become members of a tight knit community. This school provides more than an education. It provides a home.
