Universal Mercy Academy (UMA)
One of the greatest challenges that Muslim youth are facing in the United States is developing confidence in their faith. Recent research studies by Pew Research Center have shown that an alarming number of Muslim youth struggle with their faith. One of the greatest contributing factors to this is that they are not provided with a nurturing environment in which they can flourish both spiritually and academically.
With this concern, a group of brothers and sisters got together in 2016 to try to form the first full-time Islamic school in the Richmond area. After operating for 5 years, we closed the UMA K-5 Homeschool Co-op in June 2022.
We currently operate operate a full-time boys' Hifz program with 10 students in Rodeo, CA.
We also have started an after school Maktab (Quran and Islamic studies) program in Rodeo for boys and girls ages 5 - 10. Currently, enrollment is at 15.
Universal Mercy hosts a community festival annually called UmmahFest (ummahfest.com) with the goal of bringing the community together, uniting hearts, and joining together for a good cause.
Since 2020, Universal Mercy has operated a Zakat/Welfare fund to assist individuals and families in need in our community.
The mission of Universal Mercy is to create an inclusive learning community, with parents, a dedicated staff of employees, volunteers, and board members as partners in each child’s spiritual and academic development. By implementing rigorous academics in a nurturing environment, we aspire to develop righteous citizens with strong moral character for the benefit of our community and Ummah.
