Mission & Vision


Our mission at Crescent School is to complete the twin goals of fulfilling our Islamic obligations with regards to worldly knowledge, as well as to provide our young people with clear spiritual direction in life. Students will learn to live Islam, not act it, and they will know they must neither reject this world nor prefer it over the Hereafter.

The goals of the Crescent School mission are:

A Message from Our Principal

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

The youth are regarded as the asset of a community.  The future survival of a community depends upon the intellectual, spiritual, and educational development of its youth.

The public educational system, according to political leaders and educational experts has failed to provide guidance and direction to our youth.

Muslim schools are not only an alternate solution, but a hope for parents who expect to see their dream come true.  The goal of a Muslim school is to make our children the BEST MUSLIMS and the BEST STUDENTS.

At Crescent School, we want to educate our youth to be good law-abiding citizens.  They are trained to enjoin the moral code brought by Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all), forbid the evil, and believe in Allah.

Crescent School is a New York State chartered school since 1991.  The school follows the New York State curriculum and incorporates Islamic Studies and Arabic language at all grade levels.

Each year, Crescent School hopes to advance its mission of providing the top education in an Islamic environment to our Muslim community.  Through our school and the grace of Allah (SWT), we hope to produce the future leaders of our Ummah by developing the best Muslims and the best students.

May Allah (SWT) guide us all.  Ameen.
