Academic Excellence

The courses of study that make up the curriculum meet the educational standards that Alberta certified teachers are required to teach from the Alberta Program of Studies and for students to write the provincial achievement tests.

Our school environment not only facilitates students achieving high levels of academic success but helps students to deepen their Islamic faith and to actively draw upon their individual strengths and talents to develop the skills needed to become responsible and productive members of society and to foster a commitment to life-long learning.

Full Day Kindergarten

Our full day kindergarten provides young children with a solid foundation to help them grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. Learning takes place in a positive engaging environment where patience and understanding is exercised for future success in learning and to help prepare the child for entry into grade 1. The students learn all subjects including Arabic, Islamic Studies and Quran.

Small Class Sizes

Our low student-teacher ratio in each grade allows teachers to provide individualized attention to help students reach their highest potential and to assist each child with the challenges of school work and life experiences. Teachers are highly dedicated and committed in engaging and motivating students in their learning and encouraging students to develop confidence in their abilities. This also creates a sense of family, a climate of respect, and a spirit of cooperation.


We would like to support your child’s education by providing safe, effective and efficient bus transportation. Currently, our Bus Transportation Service operates two 20-passenger buses, providing city-wide bus service for students requiring transportation.

Islamic Character & Leadership

MAC Islamic school’s mandate is the holistic development of our students; i.e. academic, physical and spiritual development. We envision our students to be confident about their identity as Muslim Canadians and strive for academic excellence. Children of today will be leaders of tomorrow. The MAC Islamic school weaves leadership behaviour, Islamic knowledge and etiquettes and a strong sense of ownership and participation in society.
