September 2014: Full Time Women's Academy with Aalima Course

Al Ihsan Educational Foundation is pleased to announce a new and exciting set of educational programs exclusively for sisters, starting September 2014.

Program 1: Full-time Aalima Course with Academics

School going girls in grades 5-12 can study the entire Aalima course while continuing their academic school studies. This is a full time program empowering young women to become full fledged scholars of Islam and complete their high school diplomas simultaneously.

Schedule: Monday to Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Half the day will be devoted to the Aalima course, and the other half for academics.

Academics: We have partnered up with two distributed learning schools, The TLA, and iLearn DL. These schools offer home schooling programs, which we have modified with our own courses wherever it was possible. Math, Science, and English is taught as is, without any major modifications. Other than these three core subjects, the Ministry of Education has approved our course, and will award full credits upon completion of these courses. Below are some of the modifications we have made to the curriculum.

  • French as a second language has been replaced with Arabic as a second language.
  • Art has been replaced with Arabic Calligraphy
  • Music has been replaced Tajweed (Quran Vocalization)
  • Socials has been replaced with Islamic History.
  • H.C.E (a course used in Christian schools to teach Christian morals and ethics is being used to teach Islamic Education. This covers all the major aspects of fiqh, such as tahaha (purity), salat, zakat, sawm, hajj, Islamic beliefs, Hadith, etc..

For the sake of better organization as well as other important reasons, students in grades 5-7 will enroll with the TLA, while students in grades 8-12 will enroll in iLearn DL.

Teachers: – iLearn DL will provide teachers who will teach the core subjects (Math, Science, English), provided that we have enough students to form a full classroom.

– Other female instructors who have graduated with degrees in Education.

– Most of the Aalima course will be taught by male scholars, either from a remote location, or onsite from behind a curtain.

Fees: Fees for the Aalima course with Academics are $300 per month.
