"Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not." Al-Qur’an 96: 1-5
The education program of Islamic School of Columbia-Missouri (ISC-M) has been developed with the ultimate aim to prepare a student to be the best Muslim citizen possible - one who consciously worships Allah (SWT) and diligently promotes Islamic values; according to the teachings of Al-Qur’an and Al-Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
We present core curriculum in mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, computer science, physical education, and fine arts (following some of the best public and private schools of the region).
The curriculum of all subject areas has integrated Islamic principles and knowledge with the criteria set forth by the State of Missouri. It also incorporates education materials and guidelines developed by Islamic educational organizations, such as IBERR, IQRA and the Tarbiya Project. Core subject areas are Qur’an, Arabic, Islamic Studies, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, Language Art, Computer Studies and Physical Education. ISC-M strongly emphasizes the development of Islamic behavior and personality. Daily instruction includes different aspects of Islamic manners, prayers and how to maintain an Islamic personality in a non-Islamic society. The instructions encompass every aspect of students’ lives, such as school uniform, holiday celebrations, hygiene and personal etiquette (including male/female social interactions).
