Welcome to Our Services.
One of CISNA's goals is to provide services for Islamic schools that will assist them in delivering education of the highest quality by maintaining viability. To achieve this goal, CISNA seeks to serve as a clearinghouse that directs or connects the needs of the school to the most appropriated organization or agency. CISNA will also serve as an agent connecting schools to organizations and agencies that will offer financial and human resource assistance to newly formed and established schools.
A substantial number of Muslim schools are accredited by mainstream regional or national accrediting agencies. CISNA encourages schools to meet the standards set by these agencies by supporting and assisting schools in the effort to become accredited. CISNA also recognizes the need to address the unique characteristics of Muslim schools; having said that, CISNA has formed a partnership with AdvancED to development standards for accrediting Muslim schools base on the Islamic principles and values.
