Our program integrates Hifdh of Quran (2hrs/day) with Arabic language, Islamic Studies and standard state curriculum (Pre-K – 7th grade).
Our program integrates an Alim/Scholar preparatory program along with a standard state curriculum (8th – 12th grade).
Our programs focus beyond Quran memorization, it focuses on understanding the Quran and implementing it into our students’ daily lives, therefore Arabic and Islamic Studies are taught daily from Pre-K – 12th grade.
Our program is balanced in its emphasis on “DEEN” and “DUNYA” education.
Our program incorporates tarbiya to teach our students proper Islamic adaab (manners) and akhlaq (etiquettes).
Teachers focus on memorization of Quran with an emphasis on makharij (pronunciation) and tajweed (rules of recitation) and at a pace custom to each student.
Students will take courses in Quranic Arabic to develop their understanding of the Quran.
Upon completion of the Quran, the student is required to recite the Quran in its entirety in one day ensuring impeccable memorization and retention as a final exam.
Upon completion of the Hifdh program students are placed in a program where they will be readmitted in their current academic school year within Furqaan Academy.
Students are trained to lead Salah, deliver Friday Khutbahs, lead Taraweeh, deliver motivational speeches, teach Quran to others, and deliver Halaqahs – all of which we hope will inspire a generation of ideal Muslims and Muslimahs, Insha’Allah.
