At the Universal Academy of Florida (UAF), we have gotten our 24th school year off to a successful start, Alhamdulillah. This year, we were excited to see our returning families and hear about all of the exciting things they did over the summer. In addition, we were honored to welcome over 100 new students to UAF this August. Our faculty and staff start each day with energy and enthusiasm, as together we set high expectations and help our students achieve their goals of spiritual and academic success.

Every year there are changes and additions to the school as we continue on our mission to teach our students the principles and practices of Islam and prepare them for academic success and good citizenship. Some of these additions include two new assistant principals: one in middle school and one in lower elementary and a full-time guidance counselor. In addition, we have welcomed new teachers and many dedicated returning teachers and staff. Everyone started the year with eagerness and enthusiasm to the mission of UAF.

Another addition we are happy to include is the Hifth program expansion to four days a week (Monday- Thursday). Our Qur’an teachers are excited and eager to produce students who are Hufath and can carry the legacy of the Holy Qur’an. Also, for many of our families, the most exciting change is the addition of the New Tampa bus service. Insha'Allah the bus service will ease the daily commute of many of our New Tampa families and continue to make UAF an excellent option for families throughout the Tampa Bay Area. We are looking forward to having another successful year with the help and guidance of Allah (SWT).
