The Umrah (Arabic: عمرة) is a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. "Umrah is expiation for the sins committed between it and the next Umrah, and Hajj which is accepted will receive no other reward than Paradise” (Bukhari & Muslim).
In 2013 ACA established our Annual Umrah trip. High school students, their families, and staff are now able to go to the holy land and perform Umrah together.
Students performing Umrah with their peers at this stage of their lives will inshaAllah be a profound experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
