ICK Saturday Academy 2020-21 Enrollment is now CLOSED
ICK Saturday Academy offers Islamic education to students ages 5-13. Classes will be held on Saturdays (Aug – May) from 10:30 AM- 1:00 PM (Online only)
Students will be evaluated prior to the first official day of school in order to be placed in appropriate levels. The school has three classes: Qur’an, Arabic, and Islamic Studies.
Our Qur’an instruction is centered around not only reciting and memorizing the Qur’an, but also understanding its themes and messages in order to produce members of society with exemplary moral character. We constantly encourage our students to connect the beautiful verses of the Qur’an to their personal lives and the world around them, regardless of whether they are level 1 or level 4 students. Students in levels 1 and 2 begin by learning the essential Juz Amma surahs and then progress on to learning a variety of longer Surahs from all over the Qur’an in levels 3 and 4. Our overall goal with Qur’an instruction is to give our students the foundation that they need in order to become lifelong learners of the Qur’an inshAllah.
From the basics to the 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 have an understanding of Allah (swt), the Seerah, and the stories of the Prophets. Depending on their level, these topics get deeper and demand students to think critically about their position in a Western society. Not only do we explore Islamic texts and traditions, but we also make sure to cover topics which will allow our students to build their character and thrive as American-Muslims through their adherence to manners and strong moral values.
Our Arabic curriculum is designed strategically to allow students to come out of ICK Academy knowing how to read the Qur’an and understand vocabulary words from it. Each level builds off of the level that precedes it in order to provide smooth transitions for students who advance. Level 1 begins with the Arabic letters and basic vowels, levels 2 and 3 progress on to teaching students how to read and understand words directly from the Qur’an with proficiency. Level 4 students explore these words from the Qur’an grammatically and linguistically on a higher level in order to give them the skills to bolster their understanding of Allah (swt)’s words even when they graduate ICK Academy.
Weather permitting, the students will be allowed to go outside and play. ICK Academy will provide healthy snack options to the students, however, they are welcome to bring their own. (**Post-COVID)
