About our academy

At Athary, we believe that each student is unique.

Athary Leadership Academy

Athary Leadership Academy was born late 2021 to cater for continued madrasah education need of hufaazul Qur’aan alongside their conventional secondary school pedagogy. 


We specialize in memorization and study of volumes of sciences of Islam including Hifzul Qur’aan, Hadeeth, Aqeedah, Tafseerul Qur’aan, Advanced Tajweed, Seerah, Fiqh, Nahw and Surf leading to award of Thannawiyah certificate after five years of study. 


We blend the aforementioned delicately with globally respected orthodox secondary school curricula. This we do adopting digital solutions and modern technologies. Our facilities have been intentionally adapted to offer this rare combo of both spiritual and mundane pedagogies. 


We run a 24/7 learning program in a full boarding facility equipped to develop the best of our learner-scholars’ potential including leadership skills, essential life skills, digital literacy and other 21st century skills.

Core values

Piety | Scholarship | leadership.

We’re a one-of-a-kind citadel that takes pride in preparing our cherished students for the best in global leadership. As an Islamic school, we are building a reputation for providing a first-class education that blends finely Islamic taribiyyah and conventional education. We motivate students who can read the Qur’ān by heart and have been trained in the basics of Arabic by:

Providing a secure and conducive environment that enables them become better Muslims proficient in the understanding of the Deen and the world.
Inspiring them through a structured revision of memorised surahs of the Qur’ān.
Building on their treasured Qur’ān hifz foundation (a comprehensive scholarship in ‘uloomud-Deen) alongside the conventional curriculum.
Instilling in them essential life and leadership skills in a virile digital clime.

By nurturing in our young leaders in-depth knowledge of the sunnah, tahfeez, tafseer, hadeeth, tawheed, fiqh, seerah, and aadab wal akhlaaq, we provide them a platform that helps foster their growth in Islam and makes them better people (young ‘ulaama).


Our students are also encouraged to partake in da’wah projects and other volunteer activities that help them become impactful members of the community.


By exposing our students to halqahs featuring noble Islamic scholars, basic survival tactics, and selfdefence skills, we help them in analysing matters they’re exposed to more intelligently before acting.


We also stimulate them to take interest in vocational trainings that give them more options of career paths to tread on after school.


To keep our children grounded in our rich Nigerian culture and expose them to the tenets of other religions, we tutor our students in indigenous Nigerian languages, and provide them with guided religious studies.
