About

MAI was founded in the 1930s at its’ original location at Hillside Drive, next to Masjid Haji Yusoff. It was only officially listed as a registered school in August 1946 under the Education Act. There were approximately 40 students who attended the madrasah back then.

Aligned to its mission to be a leading institution recognised for developing future-ready learners that radiate blessings to all, MAI is the Centre of Excellence & Collaboration (COEC) in Applied Learning iSTEM (Islam & Science, Engineering, and Mathematics) for the madrasah sector. To facilitate the pervasive and meaningful use of technology in madrasah’s Islamic studies and academic curriculum, it has initiated “The Future of Learning in MAI (TFLM)” movement. MAI has set its sights to be a leading institution in the transformation of traditional classrooms in Singapore madrasahs. 

MAI hopes that its graduates will develop into persons with taqwa, thinkers and learners, and leaders with compassion.

“Today, MAI is recognized for our consistently value-added outcomes, caring and dedicated staff and quality school experience for our students.

We are encouraged to note that our graduates have done well, successfully progressed to post-secondary educational institutions of their choice and they continue to learn, grow and be contributive members of society.”
