The goal of the NICC Part-time Hifz School is to build students of Quran who are able to read, recite, memorize, implement and love the Quran in a way that is most pleasing to Allah SWT. At the NICC Hifz School, there is a strong emphasis on quality of the recitation & memorization rather than the quantity of the recitation/memorization.
Part-Time Hifz Program For Boys
Here are some features of our Part-time Hifz program that set it apart from others:
- NICC Hifz Program has graduated 10 students
- Currently, the NICC Part-time Hifz school is serving 20 students
- Maintain a student teacher ration of 10:1 in most sessions
- Teachers – Full Memorization of the Quran with multiple years of experience
- Limited capacity
The program is four days a week – Monday through Thursday – with two sessions each day. The first session is from 4:30 – 6:30pm and the second session is from 6:30 – 8:30 pm with breaks for prayers (if prayer times fall during the school hours). Students will be assigned to one of these two sessions.
There will be one main teacher and one assistant teacher for a class of 10-15 students. The main teacher will be a certified Hafiz (except under the circumstances when a Hafiz is not available) while the assistant teacher may be a certified Hafiz or an experienced Quranic teacher.
Students to be enrolled in the program must be 7-16 years old, and shall be able to read any part of the Quran independently. Students will be screened by Hifz Program teachers and only the best performing students (during screening) will be accepted for enrollment. Students must be enrolled in regular schooling (public or private) and should have good academic and behavioral performance records. Noor Hifz program shall not be responsible for student(s) performance in their regular schooling.
Parents shall make sure that students are brought to the class at least 10min before the class starts and arrive 10 min before the class ends to pick up the students. Students shall not be dropped or left outside the classrooms. Parents have to play a significant role for the success of their children in this program. The whole family’s daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly activities have to be planned based on the schedule of the Hifz program students. Remember that this program is throughout the year except the holidays for only a few weeks as described in the Full-time Hifz Program calendar. This program will be very family oriented where parents have to be actively involved in running the program. A “Parents’ Association (PA)” will be formed and parents or designees will be scheduled for mandatory volunteering for certain number of hours on a weekly or monthly basis.
The tuition is $200/student/month. One-time registration fee of $50/student/year has to be paid during registration. Three months’ tuition along with the registration fee will be collected which shall be deposited during the registration (Checks payable to AIW with a memo ‘Noor Hifz Program tuition). An automatic monthly payment to the Noor Hifz Program for the months after the first three months has to be established using a form provided during the registration.
