Maingate Islamic Academy

5280 Maingate Drive, Mississauga, ON, Canada





Maingate Islamic Academy is a private elementary school located inside Anatolia Islamic Centre. Our school supports learners from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.

At Maingate, we believe and work towards supporting student growth from all aspects of development: academic, behavioral, psychological, social, and spiritual. We accomplish this by harnessing the expertise of our staff, providing a rich range of programming, and being responsive to student needs.

We understand positive learning spaces can tremendously influence a student’s ability and willingness to acquire, demonstrate, and participate in learning. At Maingate, we partner with every member in our learning community to foster spaces that breed equity, inclusivity, and tolerance. This culminates in classrooms that provide students the social and emotional infrastructure they need to develop confidence as learners, the courage to take intellectual risks, and the trust to build cooperative learning partnerships.
