The Universal Academy of Florida (UAF) is a Private Daycare-K12 Islamic School located in Tampa, FL. There are over 730 students enrolled at UAF, making it one of the fastest growing private schools in the area and it is ranked as one of the top private schools in Tampa, FL.

UAF was founded on August 28th, 1992 as a dream to ensure that our Muslim youth attended an exceptional Academy while being in line with Islamic values. In the last year alone we have had over 85 new students travel to Tampa, FL from all across the country just to become a student at UAF. 

UAF received accreditation in 1997. Alhamdulillah, we have consistently received accreditation renewal by SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), FCIS (Florida Council of Independent Schools) and FKC (Florida Kindergarten Council).

At the Universal Academy of Florida, we strive to maintain a balance between offering a competitive curriculum academically while promoting Islamic understanding and practices. Our mission is to teach the students the principles and practices of Islam and to prepare them for academic success and good citizenship. Our staff is committed to the success of our students while teaching them Islamic etiquette and characters.  ‚Äč

The Academy endeavors to achieve these goals by approaching the education process holistically - by satisfying the cognitive, spiritual, psychological, physical and social needs of our students.

Some of our noteworthy characteristics include:

We look forward to expanding our UAF family and wish the best success to all of our students. There are so many ways to contribute to the growth and success of UAF such as: joining the PTO, attending school events, giving us a review on Google and Facebook, and more.
