Curriculum

Everest Academy's curriculum is based on Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) objectives for all secular subjects. All textbooks and educational resources are approved by Texas Education Agency (TEA). These textbooks are aligned to the TEKS directives established by TEA; and are comparable to those currently being used in local public and private schools.

The Islamic Studies Curriculum is structured towards gradually introducing Muslim students to the essentials of their faith and ibadah; bring to light historic and cultural aspects of Islam; and teach them to read the Quran with correct tajweed. Multiple texts and resources are used for this purpose; and include 'I Love Islam' series; Arabic Qaida, and supplementary readers developed by Goodword Islamic series and other other publishers.

The over arching goal of Arabic curriculum is to enable the learners to read the Quran with correct tajweed, master the grammar of Quranic Arabic, and acquire Quranic vocabulary. Resources used to achieve this goal include the Quranic Qaida and 'Lessons for Arabic Language' written by Shaykh Dr. V Abdur Raheem as taught at the Islamic University of Madeenah. Students are placed into levels per their proficiency; and instruction is targeted to meet the individual needs of each student.
