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.

Fee structure will be announced soon inshAllah.
