Our Mission

This facility will be the first of its kind. Sitting on almost 10 acres, Sunrise aims to create a new generation facility that provides all the resources a community needs, with the ability to generate passive income that will cover the overall expenses associated with running a private school.

Sunrise will provide families the religious, educational, and social resources they need to prepare our future generations for lifelong learning and service.

Our vision for Sunrise is not only to build a facility, but also to build a model for other communities to follow. Our motto is “Service of Faith & Community is what guides all we do”. Our center will be the hub for the Muslim community and our local community, providing a space for growth and cooperation to better our community.
