The Islamic Education Trust manages several schools. Among them are the following:
- New Horizons College, Minna
- New Horizons Nursery/Primary Schools, Minna
- Sunrise International School, Abuja
- Modibbo Model Islamic Primary School, Wushishi
The mission of IET schools is:
- Academic excellence
- Broad general and Islamic knowledge
- High Islamic moral ethos
New Horizons College was established in 1995 and has been growing in reputation and popularity with every passing year. Many parents find that it has the right balance between Islamic orientation and the National Curriculum. It has also combined academic excellence with moral character development.
In recent entrance examinations for admission to New Horizons College in September 2008, almost 600 candidates competed for about 90 places, which is an indication of its popularity.
The students not only get praiseworthy results in public examinations but also win important national prizes as in Physics in 2006 and Information Technology (IT) in 2007. Senior students also go through the internationally acclaimed Train-the-Trainers Course in Islam and Dialogue for peaceful co-existence. This course enables the students to deal effectively with cases of students’ common misconceptions about Islam among Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
The College sends students to places of interest in Nigeria and has recently sent student groups on educational visits to Egypt and Turkey.
The other IET schools cater for Nursery and Primary levels, and a good number of their pupils go on to get admission to New Horizons College.
