Furqaan Academy

About Us


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Furqaan Academy for grades Pre-K to 12th. For over 14 years, our school has been committed to answering a fundamental question: “What matters most when educating your child/children at Furqaan?”

Continually refining our answer to that question has helped us to grow and evolve with purpose and passion. Both are visible everywhere when you visit our campus or see our program in action, which is, focus on memorizing the Quran and our integrated Hifz program for our young children, along with full time academic school for all.

We have the freedom to develop a modern and remarkable curriculum that is not only exceptional academically, but also Islamically. Furqaan responds to what the world needs now more than ever – respect, discipline, compassion, generosity, grace, intention, justice, and hope. As a result, our students enjoy the experience, are confident and competent. Also, they recognize a world beyond their own needs.

Our school culture demands that our students, teachers, and families be ever mindful of their role in setting and reaching goals. Our students and teachers pose questions and ideas that provoke and inspire deep understanding and tangible growth.

We will continue to focus on our every student, in every classroom, and everyday approach to ensure that all Furqaan Academy students have the world-class education they deserve Islamically and academically.

Please join Furqaan!

Furqaan Academy Bolingbrook, founded in 2008, is a Pre-K – 12th Full-Time Islamic School with Integrated and Full-Time Hifdh. Our vision is to raise good Muslim citizens who are strong in faith, well-grounded in the Quranic knowledge, and have a strong foundation in academics.

Furqaan Academy is the manifestation of the founder’s, Wajahat Sayeed of Al-Furqaan Foundation, vision to develop students who are grounded in the Quran – a Quranic generation. As an organization devoted to the service of the Quran in the west, the Foundation wants to ensure that the upcoming generations will come closer to the Quran by understanding its language and by proper training of implementing the Quran and Sunnah in their daily lives. The choice of being a Muslim should be a natural choice, due to their understanding of the deen and not merely as a virtue of being born in the faith.
