If your child is not offered admission, our admissions team will send out an email asking if you would like your child to be considered for the following school year.

Depending on the capacity of your child’s classroom, your child may need to wait on the waiting list. Waiting time can vary depending on your child’s age, when you start the application process, the number of students on our waiting list, among others.

One of the goals here at Iqra School is to provide an opportunity for all of our students to pursue academic education while at the same time, learning more about our beautiful and peaceful religion. By offering both the Manitoba & Islamic Studies curriculums in a single academic year, our students are able to work towards attending public/private high schools and eventually university.
We place a great importance on ensuring that our students are able to read the Holy Qur’an in the manner in which it was intended to be recited in. All of our Qur’an teachers are native Arabic speakers from various countries in the Middle East.
