At Islamic Institute of Atlanta, we work to hard to ensure that our students excel, not only in their deen, but also in their secular education. IIA has taken measures to ensure that students comply and even exceed the state of Georgia’s academic standards for their grade level.
The students at Islamic Institute of Atlanta enroll in the online K12 program through Georgia Cyber Academy.
The award-winning K12 curriculum is rooted in decades of research in effective educational practices and the insights of cognitive science—the science of how the mind works and how we learn. The K12 curriculum features:
- A comprehensive catalog of courses with engaging online lessons, videos, and interactive games, complemented by hands-on manipulatives and interesting textbooks
- Core subjects and electives, including world languages
- AP®, honors, STEM, and dual credit offerings

Full-time students complete their schoolwork each day through a combination of:
- Online lessons and interactive activities in the Online School (OLS)
