Thank you for your interest in Unity Academy of Chicago. Selecting a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make to nurture your child’s mind, body, and soul. To that end, Unity Academy of Chicago offers a superior Montessori environment for children between the ages of 3 and 10.
Our mission at Unity Academy of Chicago is to provide our students with an education that instills a lifelong love for learning and excellence. Our students are taught to view and understand the world through the light of the Glorious Quran and the teachings of our Noble Prophet Muhammad and his pure family. Through a comprehensive curriculum and compassionate environment, Unity Academy of Chicago equips students with the knowledge, values and mindset they need to contribute to a better world.
We recognize that to achieve their highest potential, children need support from both the school and the home. Thus, we look forward to a productive partnership with you, the parents, to further strengthen the foundations of your child’s education.
The Prophet Muhammad (s) advised us to ”Love children and have mercy on them.” As a community, we have built this school as a vehicle to give the very best to our children. Our hope is that consciousness of Allah will find a place in their hearts and they will excel in all areas of life. We invite parents to join this important cause.
We are very excited at the prospect of working closely with your family and are honored that you are considering Unity Academy of Chicago as an integral part of your child’s upbringing.
