The YIISI – Yayasan International Islamic Schools of Indonesia (Al-Taqwa College Indonesia) is an affiliation to the Islamic Schools of Victoria (Al-Taqwa College Australia) Inc., which was established by a group of Muslims of various nationalities through an Islamic Trust Fund in 1986. The YIISI was opened on the 15th of July 2008.
Al-Taqwa College Indonesia is perched on the Hambalang hill that surrounded by magnificent nature view. It is located at Hambalang Village RT 005/002, Citeureup – Sentul, Bogor. In here, our children will be able to learn and play peacefully while enjoying the beautiful panoramic around the school.
The YIISI was established with the purpose to give an opportunity for parents to allow their children to obtain a Cambridge curriculum align with National curriculum, with the fundamental of Islamic values from Primary to Secondary Year 12.
We believe that education is important regardless of race, nationality or gender.
The Islamic Schools of Victoria (Werribee College) Inc was established in June 1986 after its founder, Mr Omar Hallak realised the importance of educating young children in an Islamic Environment.
With this inspiration in mind, over 50 acres was purchased in Sayers Road. The first school year commenced with one portable and a total of 25 students, the College was on the road to educational excellence.
The College has grown considerably since its inception, offering education from the Preparatory years to VCE.
Al-Taqwa College established a horticultural and agricultural campus in Derrimut Road, Tarneit. The campus is now RTO accredited delivering nationally recognised and accredited training and assessment services.
In 2008 a sister college was officially opened in Indonesia called Al-Taqwa College YIISI, Sentul Campus. The campus offers the Australian curriculum and VCE diploma for their students. Sentul is a co-educational College where the majority of its students are local and from within the Asian continents.
Our students live in an increasingly globalised world with many responsibilities. To prepare our students for leadership in a global society, we offer students an annual exchange program with our Sentul Campus. This program is available for students in Year 9 to 10. The experience allows our students to develop into confident, independent young adults.
In 2009 a Masjid was built on the Al-Taqwa College grounds. The Masjid was fully funded using community donations, costing approximately $4.5M.
