Mission and Vision
Our aim is the cultivation of a student body comprised of well-balanced individuals who consistently demonstrate the qualities of both competent scholarship and productive citizenship.
As an academic institution, we are, above all, committed to the scholastic development of each student. Our ultimate vision is to provide society with strong, knowledgeable Muslim leaders who have the capacity to make positive contributions to their generation and beyond.
The Islamic Center of Claremont Community School (ICCCS) is committed to providing our students with the means for intellectual development through a rich academic program that is rooted in the classic tenets of American and Islamic scholarship.
As an institution we seek to provide the highest quality of education, with an emphasis on the development of strong moral character under the auspices of an Islamic environment. The teaching methodology and focus of instruction serve to address the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of all our students. We aspire to enable our students to make positive contributions to their own communities, and to the world around them.
It is our aspiration to expand each student’s understanding of the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, which are preserved in the Arabic linguistic forms. Finally, the penultimate task undertaken by I.C.C Community School is to provide students with a strong Arabic Language program, whose goal it is to effectively broaden every student’s understanding and acumen in the Qur’anic Studies.
ICCCS believes the application of cognitive theory in conjunction with an emphasis on Islamic values, is best achieved through an integrative style of instruction inclusive of strategies dedicated to critical thinking, problem solving, and highly engaged interactive learning. ICCCS’s rationale for this philosophical approach is to produce students of superior intellect who possess a positive self-identity rooted in the Muslim faith.
