Islamic schools, like other private religious-affiliated schools, have a dual-track curriculum. They focus on both secular academics and religious studies while providing a balanced education for their students.

Secular curriculum: Islamic schools provide a strong secular education. Dedicated instructors teach subjects such as math, science, English, French, and history, in a rigorous and engaging manner. These subjects are typically taught on their own, as part of a segregated curriculum. Sometimes, though, they’re integrated with the religious curriculum. For instance, they might be taught in an Islamic context, as part of an overall integrated curriculum.

Most Islamic schools don’t offer music or dance. Some more traditional schools don’t offer drama either. Otherwise, they teach all other core secular subjects.

Religious curriculum: The religious curriculum in private Islamic schools is meant to give students a solid foundation in the Muslim religion (or religion of Islam). Students closely study the Quran. By examining the Quran, students learn about Islamic law, and apply its lessons to real life. Some students even memorize this holy Muslim text or large portions of it.
