How can I be assured that my child will be getting a high-quality education?
Bayaan Academy’s administrators have a wide range of experience and over 50 years of combined experience in school leadership. Bayaan Academy’s faculty is made up of well-trained and experienced teachers who take continuous professional development and educational courses to constantly improve student learning and engagement.
Our small classroom size ensures that each student receives the attention he or she deserves; each class is limited to a maximum of 16 students.
In preparing our students to become torchbearers of future generations inshaAllah, we offer summer programs for continuing education and team building. The 10th graders are enrolled in the AP Capstone Program and are enrolled in an FLVS Leadership course. A group of the students will also be attending the Global Leadership Summit in Berlin, Germany in July 2022 insha’Allah.
Does Bayaan Academy incorporate Islam into the Academic subjects taught?
Our teachers work diligently to make connections between the Qur’an and Islamic Studies curricula and both real life and the Academic subjects. This helps our students see the amazing correlation between our Deen and our lives.
How will academic mastery be determined at the end of the year for each student?
Each student in Gr. 3 and up will take the CTP-4 standardized test online at the end of the year. After examining the results, each student’s areas of strength and weakness will be identified, and strategies will be developed accordingly for the following year and, possibly, the summer. Students in PreK – Gr. 2 are tested on the CPAA in the Fall, Winter and Spring to ensure that they are meeting and/or exceeding the standards for their grade levels

What are the plans for the Wesley Chapel campus?
Insha’Allah, a full campus offering PreK to 12th Grade will be built by August 2022.

Are any special measures being used for Covid-19?
Bayaan Academy has several measures in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. There is a “zero tolerance” policy for students and staff showing any signs of cough, sneezing, or fever. Temperature checks are taken immediately upon arrival for every student and staff member on campus. Students and staff less than six feet apart are required to wear face masks and are strongly encouraged to keep them on throughout day. Extensive sanitizing is done throughout the day along with extra hand washing by students and staff. Finally, a COVID-certified custodial company has been hired for daily cleaning and sanitizing and for weekly electrostatic fogging.
