At Hamd House Academy, we strive for scholastic excellence blended with Islamic morals, with a commitment to helping students realise their full potential and become well-balanced, productive citizens who appreciate the multicultural world in which we live. We employ an array of Islamic pedagogical skills and expertise to nurture our students holistically, in terms of their intellectual, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual development through a challenging and balanced curriculum.
Our Tarbiyyah (education and upbringing) program is rooted in various concepts derived from the life of the best and wisest of teachers, Muhammad ibn Abdullah (SAW). It is also built upon each one of our core principles and seeks to help learners become confident in their identity as Muslims in Nigeria, with an enduring desire to perform their religious duties, live in harmony with fellow citizens and contribute positively to the social, political and economic well-being of their country.
At the onset of their journey at Hamd House Academy, teachers and students alike are encouraged to continuously ask the question: “why am I here and what do I hope to achieve?” This we believe, guides towards developing the habit of examining one’s intention regularly and as a result linking every facet of the teaching learning journey to the worship of Allah. We view this as the cornerstone of a successful seeker of knowledge
We seek to inculcate in the students the habit of Al Muhaasabah (self-inventory) from the famous hadeeth on maintaining righteousness of our Beloved Messenger, Istafti Qalbak (Consult your heart). This is in order to emphasise the importance of accountability for all actions, both in public and in private.
We strive to promote the dignity of each student by teaching self-respect, respect for staff, parents, elders and brethren in humanity, through the development of personal responsibility and impressing on their young minds the idea of ‘One Body’ – that their own well-being and success is closely connected to the well-being and success of others.
Being my neighbour’s keeper represents our approach to serving the community we live in. All students must partake in at least one community outreach project of their choosing every term. This emphasises the importance of ‘service to humanity’ and the idea that a Muslim’s presence should always be felt more than any other in any community he/she resides.
At Hamd House Academy we aim to produce life-long learners in the hope that the students will develop a strong desire to continue their education as a lifetime experience. As we can never know what knowledge will be most needed in future, trying to teach it all in advance would be senseless if not impossible. The solution to this is thus, to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well, that they would be able to learn what needs to learned.
