CIMIC Weekend School
DescriptionThe CIMIC Weekend School (CWS) has been serving the Champaign-Urbana community for nearly five decades. CWS aims to provide an Islamic education--including Quran, Aqeedah, Prophet's seerah and Islamic history--while also helping prepare Muslim youth to become model participants of a multi-religious society. Students range from ages 5-18.
Additionally, CIMIC offers a Weekend Arabic School. This is an Arabic language school. Goals are to prepare students to read and converse in Arabic. The Arabic School meets for an hour immediately prior to the start of the CIMIC Weekend School. Separate registration is required if your child will take part in the Arabic School.

In addition to the regular curriculum, CWS often works with community organizations in order to give students a broader learning experience. Students in the older classes have utilized their lessons on Da'wah by hosting non-Muslim visitors from area Churches. The Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (CSAMES) has sent representatives to the younger classes to give guest presentations on Islamic Art. In addition, students in the school have often helped with CIMIC fundraising endeavors and outreach programs. The Weekend School also runs an annual summer camp program.
