Tremendous thought and effort has been inputted to create RCM’s Islamic Studies Program (ISP): a Islamic Sunday School in which children come excited and leave enriched. The program’s original slogan, “allow youth to live and love Islam” has become the embedded philosophy behind ISP’s curriculum and culture. Classes are designed to build understanding of Islam and social intelligence based on Islamic principles. Positive peer and community support encourages spiritually strong children to excel as leaders within the greater community.
ISP operates on a semester schedule every Sunday from 10am to 1pm. Registration opens July – August and November – December. Summers are off. The cost is $170/semester per child.
While ISP focuses on child development and general Islamic knowledge, RCM’s Qur’anic Sciences Program (QSP) specifically teaches Qur’an and Arabic. All QSP teachers are Nuraniyah certified, ensuring that students graduate the QSP program with adequate reading and writing skills. QSP offers a structured curriculum with a proven track record teaching students Qur'an.
QSP operates on a semester schedule and offers two class times: Sunday from 2:30pm – 4pm ($120/semester per child) and Tuesdays/Thursdays from 4pm – 5:15pm ($170/semester per child). Registration opens 1-2 months prior to the start of each semester. Financial assistance is offered on a by-need basis and for families registering three children or more.
UpLift is RCM’s youth group for those ages high school and up. Created by youth, for youth, UpLift operates as an RCM-sponsored, independently functioning youth council. Working alongside mentors from RCM, the UpLift Youth Council creates a budget, plans events, and chooses how to allocate its own resources.
In addition to regular youth events, UpLift operates a weekly high school halaqa every Sunday at RCM from 11:30am – 1pm. The halaqa is free and all those high school aged and up are welcome to attend!

This course runs on a semester schedule and registration opens prior the start of each semester. Students may choose between Sunday and Weekday classes. The cost is $150/semester per student for intermediate level classes (22.5 hours of instruction) and $105/semester per student for beginner level classes (15 hours of instruction). Tuition costs include textbooks and supplies.
RCM currently hosts two family-friendly halaqas each week. RCM’s policy is to ensure inclusivity within all events; therefore, all men, women, and children are encouraged and invited to attend both halaqas. All RCM halaqas are free, open to the public, and do not require any registration. Information regarding each halaqa is as follows:
