Taqwa was founded in 1997 amidst the desire for an educational institution that is Islamic in its foundations/values. It is upon this background that Taqwa was created to finally build an institution that balances high academic pursuit with an even higher standard of spiritual attainment.
Taqwa is structured on that recognized reputation as one of the foremost educational institutions in Nigeria. Our impeccable focal points of affordability, academic excellence and willingness to innovate have seen us thrive for over two decades.
We are a modern forward thinking school that embraces all opportunities towards unrivaled teaching and learning. Islam remains our foundation and still shapes our guiding principles and values.
On this note, we welcome all learners from all backgrounds and inclination. Do visit our grounds and experience Taqwa for yourselves.
