Ahmadi Muslim students strive for academic excellence while infusing the ideals of their faith into their academic and extracurricular pursuits. Prayer and service play a central role in the lives of students, who seek and act upon the guidance of His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Students Association (AMSA) USA is an auxiliary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) and falls under its Department of Student Affairs (Umur-e-Talaba). AMYA USA is a nationwide youth group that works with young Muslim men and boys around the country, and part of a broader collective of AMYAs with members in more than 200 nations of the world. Three key principles guide Ahmadi Muslim students: faith, scholarship, and service.
