In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Assalamu Alaikum Qalam Collegiate Academy Family.
In the words of Martin Luther King “The function of education is to teach
one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops
with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most
dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason but no morals.
We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” (Martin Luther King Jr., 1948).
“Intelligence plus character” is the QCA promise. Our passion is to help our students find ways to reach their full potential, discover their strengths, and overcome all barriers. Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all method to teaching, our teachers create a learning culture that encourages our students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators. We advocate the teaching of moral values and strive to inculcate mindfulness into their everyday routine in order to cultivate an identity inspired by their faith. Our aim is to provide our girls with the opportunities that allow them to cross the pathway to finding their interests, passions, and ultimately themselves.
At QCA, we are committed to supporting each girls’ life goals and dreams. We take on this huge responsibility with our faith and reliance upon Allah SWT and sincere prayers that He SWT will grant us the ability and the steadfastness to fulfill this Amanah (trust) to the best of our ability.
It is our special dua for each one of our girls, that one day when they leave QCA, they leave being fully prepared to successfully engage in and effectively contribute to their communities and the world at large. Ameen!
