Primary & Secondary
DPI (Diploma in Islamic Studies)
The Alsagoff Programme is a rigorous 12-year Islamic education programme which aims to nurture noble women exemplary of the Ummahatul Mukminin. The school values of empathy, resIlience, humility, integrity and teamwork anchor our vision and mission. They have given us a treasured heritage of more than 100 years and nurtured many outstanding women of character, who are trailblazers in their respective fields.
The introduction of the Diploma in Islamic Studies in 2013 further enhances our mission in providing our students a strong foundation in Arabic & Islamic traditions (Al-Quran & As-Sunnah). The programme distinguishes itself from the other Islamic pre-university programmes available in Singapore by offering both the Al-Azhar curriculum as well as the
GCE ‘A’ Level curriculum. The programme gives students good grounding in content disciplines in four different areas (i.e., Al-Qur’an, Languages, Islamic Jurisprudence and Fundamentals of Islamic Theology). With emphasis given on Arabic and Islamic traditions, students will take on deeper learning of these subjects as well as taking on new subjects
which are not offered at the secondary level (i.e., Mantiq, Balaghah and Tarikh Tasyri’).
Students will sit for the GCE ‘A’ Level Examination and upon successful completion of the programme, will be awarded the Diploma in Islamic Studies.
Interested applicants must meet the following criteria:
❖ A female student of at least 17 years old;
❖ Completed the GCE ‘O’ Level Examination; and
❖ Obtained good results in the End-of-Year Secondary 4 Examination (Thanawi 4) with
an overall percentage of 60% and above.
In addition, applicants from other madrasahs are required to:
❖ Pass the Entrance Examination.
● Registration: $100 (only applicable to applicants from other madrasahs)
