History

In 1991, English medium of instruction was introduced at Nusrat Jahan Academy. For the purpose of which both sections of the school were further divided into Urdu and English medium sections.

Affiliation with Aga Khan University Examination Board

AKU-EB logo
Nusrat Jahan Academy Boys School and Nusrat Jahan Academy Girls School were affiliated with the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Faisalabad since coming into existence till the year 2011. Until then students of classes five and eight would write an annual, external examination conducted by the Punjab Education Commission (PEC). In February 2011, PEC issued admit cards for these exams; the admit card of every student said non-Muslim in the religion field.

This blatant violation of the terms of their contract impelled the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya— the governing body of all schools of the community— to terminate affiliation with BISE Faisalabad and PEC.

These schools were then affiliated with Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB), in March and April of 2011. AKU-EB is a private examination board based in Karachi. It has no history of religious persecution. The students of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) write the AKU-EB exams in May every year. Improvement and supplementary exams are held in the month of September every year.

Facilities

Nusrat Jahan Academy Boys School, Nusrat Jahan Academy Girls School and Nusrat Jahan Boys College are functioning in barracks owned by a separate organisation within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community; Jalsa Salana Rabwah. Furthermore, all Nusrat Jahan Schools are non-profit organisations; taking nominal fees for the services they provide. This puts a limit to the facilities that they can provide. However, all these institutions are equipped with basic educational facilities such as libraries and science laboratories including laboratories for Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. It can be safely said that progress, however insignificant, is being made in this area.
