Weekend Islamic School
The Weekend Islamic School offers preschool, elementary, and middle school level Islamic Studies and Arabic language instruction. We operate under the guidance of the Islamic Society of Vermont. The school’s objective is to provide young children with a comprehensive curriculum that develops and expands their knowledge about Islam and the Arabic language. The education process of the school is conducted within the guidelines of Islamic values and ethics that emphasize respect for all.
Weekend Islamic School of Vermont Story
In 2006, a group of parents from our community joined together to work on a Weekend Islamic School project. Several milestones have been achieved since then, thanks to the hard work of many brothers and sisters.
Today, with the extraordinary commitment of our volunteer teachers and with an established curriculum, the school is held weekly on Sundays. The weekend Islamic School runs on a 30-week school year split into trimesters of 10 weeks each. Below are few highlights of our school achievements:
Holding yearly Quran Competitions with awards distributed.
Encouraging proper praying postures and behavior.
Enrollment of over 100 students ranging from ages 4 to 16.
Starting up an online program from Al Azhar University for Quran Reading.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
My child has been at the Weekend Islamic School of VT for 3 years and so far it has been a fabulous experience. In looking at Islamic schools we wanted to give our children a top-tier education, and this school delivers that.
I truly appreciate how the Weekend Islamic School of VT has helped my 7 year old understand and read the Arabic letters and memorize short Surahs (up to Surah Al-Bayyinah). May Allah reward you for your sincere efforts and grant you more success Insha-Allah.
My daughter has had an awesome experience coming to the Islamic School. She loves attending and has learned a lot. We want to thank Sister Sadia and Affaf for great teaching and guidance throughout the school year. They were very responsive and approachable with any of our concerns. We commend their patience and hard work!
My son has been regularly attending the Weekend Islamic School of VT for the past 2 years. He really enjoys learning about Prophets and Islamic manners. We have noticed his progress in learning Arabic one week after the next. He loves his amazing teachers and friends. With the help of the school, my son is a very proud Muslim, an Arabic and Quran reader, and tries to be a better Muslim everyday.
My child has learned a great amount of knowledge in her first year at the Weekend Islamic School of VT. She has made many friends and will continue to learn valuable Islamic lessons in the years to come. Our family has been blessed with such an amazing school.
The Weekend Islamic School of VT helps our child become a better Muslim. With what the world today holds, I feel so grateful to have a community where I can send my kids into and not worry on their behavior, what they are learning, and with whom they’re around. The school is a positive influence to my kids and the whole family.
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said
He who follows a path in quest of knowledge, Allah will make the path of Jannah easy to him. The angels lower their wings over the seeker of knowledge, being pleased with what he does. The inhabitants of the heavens and the earth and even the fish in the depth of the oceans seek forgiveness for him. The superiority of the learned man over the devout worshipper is like that of the full moon to the rest of the stars (i.e., in brightness). The learned are the heirs of the Prophets who bequeath neither dinar nor dirham but only that of knowledge; and he who acquires it, has in fact acquired an abundant portion."
