Get to Know UAF

The Tampa Bay Area has so much to offer its residents, including one of the largest Islamic schools in the southeast United States.  The Universal Academy of Florida is situated on a beautiful 11-acre campus and has over 45,000 square feet of dedicated learning space.  UAF first opened its doors to the Tampa Bay Community in 1992 and for over 20 years has nurtured, guided, and supported its students to aspire to be greater and better Muslims academically and spiritually.  

Since 1997 the Universal Academy has maintained full-accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) and Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC).

UAF provides a safe and nurturing school atmosphere while instilling an Islamic identity in our students that will last them a lifetime as they learn to navigate through life.  Students and parents can feel comfortable and at peace in a place where everyone is welcome like family. UAF strives to help every child find their place at UAF and continuously guide and counsel our students to grow mentally and physically into the best Muslims citizens they can possibly be.

The mission of the Universal Academy of Florida is to teach the students the principles and practices of Islam and to prepare them for academic success and good citizenship.

The Universal Academy of Florida is highly ranked amongst schools when it comes to testing. UAF students have surpassed national and local averages on the ACT and SAT. UAF teachers, without a doubt, are exemplary models of high morals, standards and education. Teachers are con­tinuously learning through a Professional Development program that instills the newest and greatest methods of teaching. Our administration is supportive and inspiring to all staff and faculty. They are the backbone of UAF, constantly setting achievable and higher goals, advancing UAF above all academically and spiritually.
