High School Acceptance

Alhamdulillah, we received the letters from the high school specialty centers today. He was accepted into the Advanced College Academy at our home school, maashaa Allah. This is the program where he would earn an associate’s degree (62 college credit hrs.)  along with his high school diploma upon graduation.

Sadly, he was not admitted into the Center for Leadership and Global Economics which was his first choice. The letter explained that this applicant pool was the largest ever, with 425 applicants for 50 spots.

He has yet to find out as he is at the Model UN conference. I truly think this is for the best and Allahu alim. I think that his home school is better for him for many reasons including the diversity of the student body, closeness to our house, college credit available through this program, and likelihood he will be able to participate in the sports program.

I am making du’a he will be happy and grateful for the qadr of Allah. Jazakillah khayran for supporting us and your continous du’as.

  1. Assalamualaykum,
    I hope he will be happy inshAllah. It is probably better to avoid the Leadership college, if they are teaching leadership without the guiding light of Islam, then its not true leadership anyway.

    • Wa alaikum as salaam ummrashid,

      All we can do is trust in Allah’s decree.

      Too bad the Islamic community doesn’t offer any sort of leadership program for the youth. Alhamdulillah, we do have Girl Scouts but that is all.

    Assalamo alaikum,

    Alhamdulillah that is great news! Your system is completely different from ours so I am trying to make sense of it all. What will his main subjects be. Science/arts orientated?

    MashaAllah that is great about the weekly halaqa. I also think these things are so important for not just our mental health, but community cohesion. We have to set the example for the next generation inshaAllah.

    The science night sounds fantastic mashaAllah. I have been wanting to make flubber but it seems that borax is now considered a suspicious substance. I can’t find it anywhere.
