About Us

Noor Weekend Academy is the Islamic Sunday school associated with Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS).  We provide a fun-filled and learning-focused Islamic environment for children to learn, play, and interact with other Muslim children.  With the help and support of the local Muslim community, we work towards helping students celebrate Islamic manners and an Islamic way of life as they develop a love of Islam and become highly contributing members of our American social fabric.  See more information on:

Foreword from the Principal 

  Salam and welcome to Noor Weekend Academy! My name is Sadean Al-Ali, and I am Noor Weekend Academy's principal. It is my second year, and I am eager to share all the changes we are making to our school. 

My history with Noor Weekend Academy goes back to the very beginning, for I was a student who grew up with the love and knowledge of Islam through great teachers. I grew to become an educator myself, and currently work in the Bellevue School District. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the returning students and meeting those who are just joining the Noor Weekend Academy community. 

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! Whether you are returning to Noor Academy from your summer break or you are new to our area and school, I am pleased to welcome you to the new school year. My staff and teachers have been busy making preparations over the past several weeks, and we are all excited to kick off another great and productive school year.
