As summer vacation begins to wind down we are exciting to relaunch the ICNEV Quran Academy and Islamic School. This year we plan to offer even more programs Insha’Allah and are looking forward to a beneficial and enjoyable school year.

Orientation and Registration for both programs will take place this Saturday, August 1st at 11:00am (sharp) !

Details of both programs will be provided on Saturday and are briefly summarized below. Course timings and costs are explained in the attached handout.

Quran Academy - Building upon an incredibly successful first year Alhamdulillah, the ICNEV Quran Academy teaches children ages 5 and up how to properly recite the Quran in Arabic. As students become proficient in reading they begin memorizing the 30th juz/para with an ultimate goal that each student will commit the entire sacred scripture to heart, Insha’Allah. 

Islamic School - Intended for children ages 4 and up, the ICNEV Islamic school is designed to develop a new generation of American Muslim leaders who are well versed in the Islamic sciences. Under the leadership of our new principal, Ustadah Dana Nass, the objective of this program is to provide a fun and motivational environment for children to learn Islamic values and principles with a special emphasis on developing an understanding of the Arabic language.
