Al-Asr Educational Institute was founded in 2001 and is based in Claudius, Pretoria, South Africa. It is an independent school that is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research to push the boundaries of human knowledge. The school focuses on integrating Quranic knowledge with academics for learners from Grade RR to Grade 12. Education at the Al-Asr goes beyond the classroom and traditional academics with its rigorous curriculum that promotes character, environmental stewardship and creative thinking, as well as Social Outreach programs in which learners coordinate numerous community service projects especially in the underprivileged areas of Pretoria.
We at Al-Asr recognise our role in dealing with the dynamism of modern day living and the collateral challenges and demands on our communities to maintain our Islamic identity within a South African context.
