About the MCAIS Weekend Program

The MCA Islamic School (MCAIS) Weekend Program consists of two components:

  1. Saturday – Qur’an Reading & Memorization
  2. Sunday – Arabic, Quranic & Islamic Studies

Mission Statement & Vision :

Saturday school focuses on learning to read and memorize the Qur’an in preparation to go to a Hifz School, while Sunday school aims to build a strong foundational knowledge of Islamic Studies & Arabic language.

We aim to create a cultivating environment for children to learn to read and memorize the Qur’an (Saturday) and have basic knowledge of Islamic Studies & Arabic Language (Sunday). The weekend school program is meant to foster spiritual and academic development. This program was designed to help nurture an intrinsic motivation within the student to learn the basics of their religion and build a strong moral character. At the end of the program, we hope that the student will walk away with a embracing their Islamic identity and loving the Book of Allah (SWT).

Saturday Program Information:

The Saturday program at MCAIS aims to provide students the ability to read the Qur’an and recite it properly. Students will then learn how to effectively memorize the Qur’an. Our vision is to provide children with the best resources, teachers, and environment by which they can learn to read, memorize, and understand the Holy Qur’an. Students will gain confidence in reading and understanding the basic subjects in the Qur’an. In tandem with teaching students the Word of Allah (SWT), students will learn oft-repeated vocabulary in the Qur’an and familiarize themselves with the basic message of the text.

Sunday Program Information:

The Sunday program at MCAIS focuses on teaching Islamic Studies and Arabic. The objective of the program is to create a competitive and nurturing environment for students to learn. Student coursework will be based upon the “Weekend Learning Series” textbook series & supplemental material. In addition the program is designed to teach students the authentic ahadith of our beloved Prophet (SAW) as well as the daily adkhar and dua’s narrated from the Sunnah.
