Principal’s Message


As-Salaam-Alaikum Parents,

At Folsom Educational Academy, each and every one of our students presents as a hope of Islam. Our holistic approach to grounding students in both their spiritual and academic growth ensures our students become secure in their identity, devoted to their society, and committed to their success.

We value community as a source of empowerment, faith, and success in our academics. As the school year carries on, I want to ensure that our students, as well as our parents, feel rooted in the hope our academics and community are built upon.

As the principal of FEA, it is my goal to fulfill our mission of educating our students in intellectual and spiritual knowledge, while providing them with a safe space to flourish as Muslims who value community and the ideals of love, kindness, and respect.

Please feel free to email me, call me, or find me on campus.

New Principal Announcement

By the grace of Allah SWT, the FEA board is proud to announce the appointment of our new principal – Sr Amira Elmukhtar. Please join us in welcoming her. Sr Amira is highly qualified in the field of education and we believe she can lead FEA to become one of the finest institutions of children’s education. Here are a few words from her:

Assalamualaikum Folsom Educational Academy Parents


My name is Amira Elmukhtar and I have over twelve years of successful teaching experience in Early Childhood Education and Academic Intervention. I have a Master’s degree in Education (specializing in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment), a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology, and an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I currently reside in Rocklin with my husband Abdalla. My children, Ahmad and Leenah, also live in California, where they work and attend college.


As your principal, I will promote the success of our students by implementing Folsom Educational Academy’s vision of learning and faith that is shared and supported by the school and our community. I believe that, “While parents possess the original key to their offspring’s experience, teachers have a spare key” (Ginott). Having this spare key is an honor that drives me to ensure that all of our students are engaged in the learning process in an environment that is safe and effective. As an educator, I have found the formative years of childhood education to be the bedrock of all learning to come. My passion in education is rooted in the desire to impact these blank slates through active validation, affirmation, and the belief that they all can learn. As a disseminator of knowledge and a student advocate, I will anchor my duties on central issues of learning, staff professional growth and fostering an environment that is conducive to learning.
