About Our School

Welcome    

    Over the past 20 years the number of Clara Muhammad Schools has decreased. One of the primary reasons for this  decline is the lack of human and financial resources. Yet the need for an education program that uniquely addresses the African American experience remains. This online school initiative serves as an attempt to address these problems in the following ways.


  • Using Internet resources eliminates the expenses associated with a physical facility; 
  • Qualified and experienced educators can volunteer to teach one or two classes a week thus ensuring the potential for excellent instruction;
  • Online webinars can be scheduled to share effective teacher training methodologies without the cost of travel to distant locations;
  • Online professional development classes could be established to help teachers create their own Qur'anic based textbooks using freely available internet resources;
  • The initial thrust is to prepare Qur'anic inspired middle school courses in several disciplines: Qur'anic Arabic (inspired by the teaching of Imam W Deen Mohammed), Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, History (from an African American perspective), Community relations (Social Studies based on Qur'anic principles), Health and Physical Education, Computer Technology, Business Development and Fine and Performing Arts (art, music, poetry, etc).


    The school is named to honor the life's work of Imam W. Deen Mohammed who taught thousands of Muslim Americans how to read Qur'an with understanding, to apply its principles in their lives and to contribute positively to a wholesome American society.

    Our goal is to prepare youngsters to assume leadership roles in a global community with an eye for justice and equity for all people. It is the policy and commitment of New African Ummah Online School that it does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, sex, national origin, physical or mental disability, or religion.
