In October 2015, the Edmonton Islamic Academy (EIA) will open its doors to an impressive phase one of its newly designed high school building. Seven new classrooms, a high school lounge, and a learning resource center will welcome grade 10 – 12 students on their first day of classes. The decision to create a student lounge for our high school students to congregate for the purpose of developing social, emotional, and academic intelligences was an important feature of this impressive wing attached by a hallway to our already well-established school. The progressive and mobile teacher and student desks, state-of-the-art technology, and ample space in each classroom are expected to profoundly impact students’ attitudes and success in learning.


The addition of the new high school building will provide faculty, staff and students with the space, resources, and learning environment needed for each student to reach his/her maximum potential. When fully completed, the three-story extension will include an expanded cafeteria and community hall capable of accommodating 800 people, a beautiful outdoor atrium for use by the faculty, staff, students and parents, 21 complete classrooms, and ample storage space.


The Board of Trustees has worked tirelessly to ensure the new building project is paid for from donations from the Islamic and corporate communities. Efforts continue to be made to raise funds for the cost of this multi-million dollar project without placing an undue financial burden on the present fee structure for students who attend EIA.
