This research seeks to explore and elucidate the modernization dynamics within the curriculum of modern Islamic boarding schools, focusing on Al-Ikhlas Ujung Islamic Boarding School, Al-Junaidiyah Modern Islamic Boarding School, and Darul Huffadh Islamic Boarding School in Bone Regency. The research methodology encompasses observations, interviews, and the analysis of pertinent documents, employing a phenomenological approach. Data sources include input from Islamic boarding school leaders, ustadz (teachers), and students. The data analysis underscores the critical importance of modernizing the Islamic boarding school curriculum, recognizing that the majority of students attending these institutions do not aspire to become kiai (Islamic scholars). The innovative changes in curriculum management within Islamic boarding schools, particularly the integration of Islamic and general education, are aimed at meeting the educational needs of santri (students), a pressing requirement in the modern era. Modern Islamic boarding schools now offer a comprehensive education that encompasses general religious subjects, both within and outside the regular curriculum, including the exact sciences.
