Welcome to Mar Qardakh School

Located in the heart of the Middle East, Mar Qardakh School strives to perpetuate a great and ancient heritage. Iraq is often thought of as the Cradle of Civilization, the land where some of the first and greatest ancient civilizations and cultures - Babylon, Mesopotamia and Assyria - began. The beginning of multiple languages, the beginning of writing and the beginning of education have often been associated with this region.

Today, Mar Qardakh School is building upon this ancient heritage and carrying it forward by providing a comprehensive, rigorous education, centered on the holistic development of the entire person, in order to invest in the well-being of each individual and of the community as a whole.

Urgent Appeal

Help Us Prepare Our Library

In order to equip our school's library with the appropriate and necessary resources (hardcopy and digital books), we have started a fundraising campaign so that people (individuals or groups) who are interested in supporting this project can help, either by monetary donations, or by spreading out the word (by sharing on social networks or even by word of mouth).


With Love,

Mar Qardakh School
