Earn Credits Towards High School and College Diploma at the Same Time.
I have enrolled in College at age 16 and I am earning my High school credits and credits towards College degree at the same time.
I am so excited to have opportunity to save 2 years of schooling and complete my degree early. For the past 2 years I have been enrolled in Al Qalam Academy’s mentorship program which prepared me to feel confident and knowledgeable to pass College Entrance Exam. This program helped me to learn how to study, improve my mindset and set goals for myself. Lessons and live classes were interesting and relevant so that improved my motivation to learn. Thank you!

How Our Program Works
Our mentorship program prepares students to become more independent over time and take responsibility for their studies. Our schedule style helps students to suceed in more self-directed environments such as college and the workplace in their future.
Our classes are small groups of 10 or fewer students. We meet during the week Mondays through Thursdays usually between 9am and 3pm (depends on the time zone) and Fridays we have for individual work on projects.
We assess students based on their progress during the school year not only on test results. Performance-based learning and performance-based assessment is a system of learning and assessment that allows students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a learning environment that embraces their higher-order thinking skills, as well as relating it to real-world situations.
Our teachers are experts in the field. They are passionate and knowledgable about the subject they teach. We understand teaching more as a mentorship not lecturing.
Over the past 13 years I have taught over 100 children in different learning settings and using different teaching methods. That created a wealth of experience for me on how kids learn and what teaching methods work best.
I had been tutoring one-on-one and in small groups.
Al Qalam Academy started in 2009 as a community center where homeschoolers were taking classes designed for them. Many families benefited from new, relevant educational classes offered at Al Qalam Academy.
Our first high school graduate student entered college at age 16 and successfully continued college classes. We are looking forward to many other young students achieving their educational dreams with Al Qalam Academy.
“Homeschooling 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Been a fan of Azra Sehovic’s meticulous homeschooling, have first hand worked with her kids and I can vouch MashAllah how brilliant and well mannered they were. JazakAllah Khair for this, this was a much needed effort given current times.”
” My daughter has always been struggling with math, and she avoided any work that has to do with math. However, in this short course, she did homework on her own, and she memorized more in 7 days than she did for 7 months in school. The teacher gives various tips for memorizing multiplication facts. She also teaches in a clear and fun way and gives students motivation and positive reinforcement. “
” … this course was very helpful for my girls, they learned beneficial strategies to help them learn multiplication for not only right but to help them in future too. “
Take Control Over Your Education
“In short, this will help you educate your children with confidence. Parenting as well as homeschooling is overwhelming. It is a great blessing to have a good advice.
You’ll still be able to do it your way – only better!”
