ICK Weekend Academy offers Islamic education for students ages 5-12

The school offers three classes: Qur’an, Arabic, and Islamic Studies

Classes are held on Saturdays OR Sundays (Aug–May) from 10:30AM- 1:30PM

Qur’an

Our overall goal with Qur’an instruction is to give students the foundation that they need to become lifelong learners of the Qur’an.

Our Qur’an instruction is:

  • Centered around understanding its themes and messages, in addition to reciting and memorizing the Qur’an
  • Connecting the beautiful verses of the Qur’an to student’s personal lives and the world around them, regardless of the student’s level
  • Level 1 & 2 Learn the essential surahs of Juz Amma
  • Levels 3 & 4 Learn a variety of longer Surahs from various parts of the Qur’an

Arabic

Our overall goal with the Arabic instruction is to allow students to know how to read the Qur’an and understand vocabulary words from it. Each level builds off the level before it to provide smooth transitions for students who advance.  These skills help give students the skills to bolster their understanding of Allah (SWT)’s words even when they graduate ICK Academy

  • Level 1 begins with the Arabic letters and basic vowels
  • Levels 2 and 3 Reading and understanding words directly from the Qur’an with proficiency
  • Level 4 Exploration of words from the Qur’an grammatically and linguistically on a higher level

Islamic Studies

Our overall goal with Islamic Studies instruction is to start students with the basics and then progress to more complex topics within Islamic history and tradition. We make sure that our students are equipped with the knowledge and skills that will allow them to worship Allah (SWT) in the ways in which the Prophet (saw) has prescribed. Students will: 

  • Level 1 Understand Allah (SWT), the Seerah, and the stories of the Prophets
  • Level 2 & 3 Get a deeper understanding of the Seerah and Prophet’s Stories so that students can think critically about their position in a Western society depending on the student’s level
  • Level 4 Explore Islamic texts and traditions, covering topics which allow our students to build their character and thrive as American-Muslims

Break Time/Snacks
