HQA is a K-12 accredited school that combines academics with the Quran memorization and understanding in a unique way. Results so far are outstanding. The school is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), which is the southern branch of Advanc-Ed. Advanc-Ed is the most prestigious accreditation organization in the United States and in the World.
It is the same organization that accredited the University of Houston, Rice University, and other universities and colleges. All schools accredited by Advanc-Ed are well recognized by the Department of Education of the United States. All courses and credits are accepted and recognized in any school in the United States. With that in mind, let us look into the academic part first and then into the Quran memorization after that.
The test results also give each school the average score for each grade level in different areas such as math, English, reading and other areas. The average for the entire grade levels in the elementary and middle school can give the school a good indicator of where the school stands. If a school’s average score is in the 50th percentile, then the school is average. The higher the average score, the better the school is. Normally, good schools achieve scores that are in the 70th percentile and above.
Hence, the results biased and the reliability of the results is not strong. However, we pray to Allah to enable us to continue our success. Third, most of our students in high school will be finishing the whole Quran with full understanding; some of them already did. In fact one of those who 3 scored 32 already finished the memorization and understanding of the Quran. Alhamdulillah, we owe our success to the Barakah of the Quran.
At HQA, we try our best to bring a comprehensive memorization program that is not limited to just mere and blind memorization; our program is much deeper than that. It plays an integral part in the preparation of our students to be the future scholars and leaders of Islam in this country. Here is a description of what makes HQA Quran Memorization Program unique and different from other memorization programs.
