Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on a combination of old values and new ideas. We have created a teaching method that revives traditional teaching styles from the past and couples it with modern education advancements. With this combination of old values and new ideas, we hope to set new standards for education. Our academic concentrations are on core subjects such as Math, English, Science, and History. However, we also emphasize subjects from the oral and cognitive sciences such as ethics, logic, reasoning, rhetoric, and speech. Overall, our curriculum places strong emphasis on both Islamic & Academic educations.

The concept of islam, imaan and ihsan are stressed throughout the whole education. For an education to be sound all of these elements must come together. Intellectual knowledge must be paralled with spiritual feeling in order for all concepts to penetrate deeply in the child.Islam is the concept of outward practice, or outward knowledge. These are the rules of jurisprudence, the objective of the lesson, the skill actually needing to be learned.  Imaan is the concept of the inner practice. This is the light that Allah subhanu wa ta’ala places into the hearts of the human beings.  And Ihsan is when these two concepts unite establishing a state of sincerity and spiritual excellence that permeates of the of individual’s actions.

Our goals at Northstar are to provide children spirit-based education that can be carried into all subjects and all areas of life.  We know that every child is unique and responds to differing stimuli. Our method is modified to treat each child’s individual needs while they work and grow in a healthy peer environment. We look forward to working with your child and shaping the future of tomorrow with the hard work of today!

A Star Without a Name

When a baby is taken from the wet nurse,
it easily forgets her
and starts eating solid food.
Seeds feed awhile on ground,
then lift up into the sun.
So you should taste the filtered light
and work your way toward wisdom
with no personal covering.
That’s how you came here, like a star
without a name. Move across the night sky
with those anonymous lights.

– Rumi
