Averroes High school was founded in 2010 by a a group of educators eager to provide a strong option for the Muslim youth in the Bay Area.
These Muslim educators joined together their classical teaching knowledge with their modern teaching skills along with a constant lens or morality and hope in supporting students for success. It is our goal to support our students with strong sense of identity and clarity if vision.
Averroes provides world-class academics, grounded in real life experiences, in an engaging, holistic and personalized learning environment that integrates college readiness, social and emotional learning, and Islamic studies and practice.
Our teachers and staff support students individually as they grow into dynamic and confident leaders with the emotional intelligence, self-confidence, maturity, and strong Islamic and intellectual roots that will prepare them for challenges in life after high school.
Averroes students start attending community colleges under our umbrella, and are well prepared to graduate into elite colleges, including Cornell, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, Purdue, NYU, Santa Clara, SF State, SJ State, San Diego State, and Zaytuna College.
