School History



It all started as an idea in early 2000s when a few Muslim families felt the need of a full time Islamic school to serve the children of the Upstate region. In 2008, the idea became a reality: As-Sabeel Academy of Greenville started with just five students in a couple of classrooms at the Greenville Masjid. Alhamdulillah, with Allah’s help and community’s support, the Academy grew every year. For the academic year 2023-24, over 175 students are registered and enrollment is expected to reach 250 students in the near future.

With over ten years of accreditation by the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA), and excellent academic program from K4 through 8th grade, As-Sabeel academy not only surpasses state and national curriculum standards, but its alumni have also been outstanding high school and college students, with some being valedictorians and receiving full ride to colleges. More importantly, they have become good Muslims and productive members of society, serving the communities they live in. The As-Sabeel Academy’s current facilities include two buildings (7,500 sq. ft, classrooms, library, etc.), 8,000 sq. ft. multipurpose hall, a playground, soccer filed, an additional 5,000 sq. ft building is in the works and much more. The school is run by 20 hard-working faculty and staff overseen by a volunteer school board. Obviously, the support provided by our dedicated Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) and a number of other dedicated volunteers is priceless.

See how you can be part of the As-Sabeel family to help nurture the next generation of productive Muslims: register your child, work as a teacher/staff, volunteer your time, and/or provide financial support towards our financial aid program.
