RCM’s Quranic Sciences Program is specifically designed for elementary and middle school students looking for a stronger focus in Qur’an and Classical Arabic. QSP classes are organized by the student’s Arabic reading and writing competency and not by grade. The QSP curriculum is structured around three learning levels:
Level 1 (Beginner/Nuraniyah): Students learn how to read Arabic as it is written in the Quran using the Nuraniyah methodology. On average, students who start with no knowledge of Arabic are able to read from the Quran alone after two years, given that they have enrolled in the weekday schedule and attend class twice a week. A portion of the beginner class is dedicated to writing Arabic and building Arabic vocabulary.
Level 2 (Intermediate/Tilawa): Students in the intermediate level build upon what they have learned in the previous level and continue improving their Qur’an reading skills. A portion of the intermediate class is dedicated to writing Arabic and expanding their understanding of the Arabic language.
Level 3 (Advanced/Tilawa): Students in the advanced level build upon what they have learned in the previous level and continue improving their Quran reading skills by regularly analyzing and practicing the Tajweed rules. A portion of the advanced class is dedicated to memorizing, writing and understanding the duaas present in the Quran.
