Terms and Conditions


We keep our classes small to enhance learning outcomes. Because of this, it is important that our classes are filled up with students that are committed to the class.  If you have questions about a class, please contact us prior to signing up to make sure the class will meet your expectations.
Classes can ONLY be dropped within the first two weeks of the semester. 

There is a $65 fee if dropped within the first week of class.
There is an $80 fee if dropped within the second week of class.
The remaining balance after dropping will be refunded.

Classes CANNOT be dropped after the second week of scheduled classes. After the second week of scheduled classes no refund will be given. 

 To drop a class please email

IPHG reserves the right to cancel any class. In the event a class is canceled before beginning, a credit to be applied for future semesters will be given. Credit will be for the value of the canceled class.

Please pick up your child up at the time the class is scheduled to end. If your child is staying for lunch, please inform the staff and be sure to pick your child up promptly when lunch ends at 12:15pm.


In the event that a teacher is sick, IPHG will attempt to find a substitute for the class. If a substitute cannot be found, or if the class is highly specialized to the point that a substitute would compromise the quality of instruction, class will be canceled and a refund for the canceled class will be given.

IPHG is open to all students irrespective of race, gender, nationality, religion, nationality, disability, familial status, or financial status.

All children must be in a class or the lunch room (gymnasium), or with their parent while at IPHG.
