Dear AYA Families:

Here is an overview of AYA and all that it has accomplished since they opened their doors to our community.


  • AYA was built on the foundation of IAF (Islamic Academy of Florida), which was established in 1992.

  • AYA opened in 2004 with 225 students and, since then, has grown to 595 students.

  • In 2009, AYA moved out of its trailer classrooms into state-of-the-art buildings. With the consistent growth in enrollment, AYA has almost outgrown its current facilities.

  • AYA’s students, faculty and staff come from 5 continents and over 29 different countries.

  • 38% of the students live in the Temple Terrace area; 38% live in New Tampa, 20% of the students come from various areas such as Brandon / Valrico/Riverview, Lutz and the University area. Approximately 6% of the students commute 45 minutes to over an hour to school from Carrollwood, Town & Country, Largo, Apollo Beach and Sarasota.
