What Parents Are Saying About IHPA…

“What an awesome, enriching organization you all have created in our community! Every community offers a full range of public and private sports teams, but having an academy of professionals to help our children develop their artistic gifts is rare and makes Indian Hill and the surrounding communities even more special places to call home.  Our children will be more well-rounded and lead richer lives as a result.  Kudos!” – Gary Hudson

“I want to let IHPA know that the Arts are important and do make a difference! Children play soccer, tennis, football etc.   All of which helps build confidence, leadership and team building. Not all children or people are wired the same and for those who may not excel in sports the ability to explore,express and share there talents is a gift.  Thank you and your team for your commitment, understanding and very hard work.  You and your team make a difference.” – Jeannie Walton
