ONLINE ISLAMIC SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAM

Join Other Kids to Learn Arabic, Quran & Islamic Studies

Next term: May 9 - August 15, 2022

Online Structured Sunday School Classes

With the COVID-19 pandemic still spreading around the world, many mosques have had to close or limit access to follow public health and social distancing guidelines. As a result, many educational programs including Sunday School programs have been paused or canceled. Studio Arabiya Institute is here to help. 

We recognize the stress and worry this time and situation cause parents and families. With kids and teens stuck at home with limited to no Islamic education, we have set up an Islamic Sunday School program to fill the gap for those who depended on masjid programs.

Classes are organized in small age-based groups with a teacher - all online from the safety and comfort of your home. Each Sunday School class will cover subjects in Quran, Arabic and Islamic Studies.  

If you need any assistance during the enrollment process, our Live Student Support is here to help: just click on the live chat icon at the bottom right corner of the website or the upper left corner of the portal.

How the Sunday School Program Works

Studio Arabiya's semester-based Sunday School program fits perfectly into your weekend schedule with two hours of class time on Sundays that cover Quran, Arabic and Islamic Studies subject material each week.  Courses are held through our online Learning Management System, where you will be able to clearly see the goals of the course, have your child attend their live classes, assess their progress through assignments and exams, and earn a certificate upon completing a course.

CLASSES ARE 100% ONLINE
