Quran Intensive


The ARS Quran Intensive (QI) is an advanced, comprehensive Quran-memorization program.


The program will repurpose 4th and 5th Grade Arabic and Quran classes into a consolidated intensive program with multiple benefits for children including:


  • Memorization of the Holy Quran
  • Understanding of the Holy Quran
  • Improved reading fluency

Students in 4th and 5th Grade will be with their cohort in all core subjects and Islamic Studies from morning until afternoon (1:30 pm – Dhuhr). Immediately following Dhuhr prayer, around 1:45 pm, students will transition out from Arabic and Quran classes to the Quran Intensive program. The QI class will finish at 3:45 pm daily.

  • Must be a returning ARS student with an exemplary academic/behavior record from the previous school year.
  • For a newly enrolled student at ARS, the student must show exceptional academic and behavioral evidence from an accredited public or private school.
  • Must be able to read the Quran fluently and smoothly as assessed by QI academic team.
  • All students must pass a screening test prior to enrollment.
  • All students enrolled in the QI program must be in either 4th or 5th Grade.
  • For students to be successful in this program, an assessment at the end of each academic quarter will occur.  
  • Any student(s) not passing their academic classes may be placed on academic probation.
  • For students to be successful in the program, they must sustain excellent grades throughout the program.  
  • If grades deteriorate, and the student fails to improve their grades by the following quarter, they may be removed from the QI program. 

Fee structure will be announced soon inshAllah.

  • 4th and 5th-grade students will be expected to complete all coursework assigned by their respective core subject classes (reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, and Islamic Studies).
  • Students will attend the QI program for two 40-45 minute periods during the school day, which will not interfere with their core classes.   Subsequently, they are expected to give two to three hours a week at home to memorize and review their QI assignments. 
  • QI students must maintain a “B” or 80% average in their core subject areas.  Performing below this average will result in a probationary status that may lead to removal from the program.
  • Students must maintain their assigned memorization lessons. 
  • Students must complete the minimal Quranic memorization expectations.
  • Students are expected to follow the proper adhab (etiquettes) while attending the program. 
  • All students are expected to abide by ARS Student Handbook policies and procedures.
  • Complete and submit an online application (free of charge) on the www.alrahmah.org  website.   
  • The application review process takes less than 10 days.  
  • If the student(s) meets all requirements, parents will receive an email notifying them to schedule a pre-screening test with the QI academic team.
  • Students will be notified by the QI academic team if their child has been accepted or not via email within 7 days.
