FAQAll your Questions answered in one place
Q. What is the structure of Sunday School Class?
Our Sunday school is structured into four levels – Level 1 (4-5), Level 2 (6-7), Level 3 (8-9), Level 4 (10-11), Level 5 (12-13) – and each level will last approximately two years. Students will have Islamic studies and Qur’an sessions.
Q. Why are there two years for each level?
We have created this structure to accommodate for the fact that students only meet on Sundays for approximately 28 sessions a year, hence the two year approach gives students more time to interact with and internalize the concepts they are being taught. More time is required to master the curriculum.
Q. What are the classroom sizes?
Classroom sizes range between 15 & 20 students per class. We want to create a space that is conducive to giving each student specialized attention. Our goal is to have a teacher and an assistant in each classroom allowing for a low student-teacher ratio; we believe in the power of a differentiated classroom which gives more of an opportunity for each child to excel according to their own potential.
Q. What if I can’t afford the program?
We provide financial aid to qualified individuals. Please ask for the financial aid application.
Q. What are the tuition and fees?
There is a $50 yearly registration fee, a $25 material fee per semester, and a $250 tuition fee per semester. There is a 10% discount on tuition for families with multiple children attending the Sunday school.
Q. What curriculum will be used?
Our goals for the Sunday school go beyond just learning fact-based knowledge. Instead, our goal is to have students apply the concepts and knowledge being taught in a practical and hands-on manner (where appropriate). In addition to using specific textbooks as a reference, we supplement our lessons to put an emphasis on skills, attitudes, and values. We will use Qaida Al-Noornania (learning to read Quran), I love Islam, It’s All about Islam, and A Student’s First Guide to Juz ‘Amma as a reference; we will also be using ISWV created material. Our staff will be using creative projects where appropriate to provide students with opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
Q. Are parent orientation sessions mandatory?
Yes, parent orientation sessions are mandatory. Helping the child requires a partnership between the school and home. The orientation session will have valuable information to help parents understand what they can do with the child at home to help get the most out of the Sunday school experience.
Q. How can I Help?
If you or anyone you know can afford to sponsor tuition fees for families in need, please speak to the Sunday School Administration. We have a running list of materials that we need for the school. Please let us know if you are able to donate to the program. Parents will be notified when we need volunteers for trips and special activities.
