What are the minimal expectations of these program for my child during the academic school year?
We realize that each student has a different learning and memorization pace, as well as different ability levels (with regards to previous Quran memorization, Arabic fluency, and knowledge of tajweed rules) present in the class composition. Students will be required to progress at a pace that is reflective of their own ability and comfort level.
Keeping the above mentioned differentiated instruction pedagogy in mind, there are minimal requirements that each child must complete by the end of 2019-2020 -year end.
Dual Hifdh students must complete the memorization and examination of 3 new Juz (not previously memorized).
