Principal's Letter

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope it conveys to you who we are and how school life is at OBK.

Al-Makassed Omar Bin Al-Khattab College, a member of Al-Makassed Philanthropic Islamic Association, is a deep-rooted educational edifice that keeps up with the latest scientific, pedagogic, and technological development.

Since its founding eighty-five years ago, OBK has been preparing students with an education for a lifetime, educating them to become remarkable figures in the future, men and women of conscience, competence, and compassion.


OBK seeks to prepare a well-balanced citizen who is able to contribute to the development of his society, ready to keep up to date with the requirement of modern life in all aspects, and able to form strong and enduring relationships with others. It strives to prepare an enlightened Makassedi generation who is faithful to the great values of Islam, who believes in nation-building, who responds positively to every new challenge, and who is loyal to our mother association "Al Makassed".

To achieve this goal, OBK implements Makassed curricula which cover the learning objectives set by The Directorate of Educational Affairs at Al-Makassed Philanthropic Islamic Association, harmonized with those set by The Lebanese Ministry of Education. Our programs promote the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social growth of every student. They enable our learners to explore their passions at very high levels with peers who share the same interests. 

At OBK, we also aim to cultivate in our students not only important skills like problem-solving, analysis, and creative and critical thinking, but also we want them to live a life of honour, respect, dignity, and kindness. We also offer a number of extra-curricular activities. We want the OBKs to attain outstanding academic results and personal confidence and self-belief to enable them to be successful individuals at every stage of their lives.

All of this is achieved in a healthy stimulating environment where students can grow into motivated and self-assured individuals with the dedication of our professional stuff who is readily available and cares deeply about students, and the positive and effective participation of the local community and careful parents who we regard as essential partners in the educational endeavor.
