2023-24 School Year

After a successful first year for the Imam Hossein Cultural Centre of Ottawa (IHCCO) Persian School, we are excited to announce that registration for the 2023-2024 school year has begun! In the new school year, we will have the following classes:

  • Kids Level 1
  • Kids Level 2
  • Kids Level 3 to 6 (waitlisted)
  • Adults Level 1

Please note that we will only focus on teaching the Persian language.

Kids classes will take place on the weekends for 2 hours in person at the IHCCO location, and 1 hour during the week online. The online sessions will contribute to continuous learning and ongoing engagement. The classes for adults will be 2 hours in person on the weekends only.

Classes will begin on September 9, 2023, and end on June 16, 2024. We will be off for long weekends, March Break, and Winter Break.


If you wish to register, please ensure to do so by Monday, June 26, 2023 through this link by selecting the level you intend to enroll in. After this date, we will reach out to you to complete the enrollment. Please note that due to limited capacity, we will register on a first-come, first-served basis.

There is a $50 registration fee. In the event that you choose to withdraw your registration by the end of July 2023, your registration fee will be refunded in full. Also, if a certain class cannot take place due to a low number of registrations, your registration fee will be refunded.

In case there are enough students registered in any of the waitlisted classes to form a class, we will communicate with you to pay the registration fee at that point.

Note – Once you register using the above link, you should promptly receive a confirmation email. Please ensure to check your spam folder as well. If you do not receive the email, your registration has not been successful. Should this occur, please contact the school as soon as possible via email to let us know.

Tuition Fees

The tuition and supply fees are listed below, which includes 34 in-person sessions (for kids and adults) and 36 online sessions (for kids only) – no class on long weekends, Winter Break and March Break.

Exceptions for how and when the payments are made can be made if necessary.

Returning Students

Students enrolled in the current school year of the IHCCO Persian School do have priority in registering for the next level.

New Students

We will be more than happy to welcome new students to our school. However, new students in levels 2 and above would need a brief interview to make sure they enroll in the correct level. We will communicate the time and conditions of the interviews.


The school will create a Telegram group for each class for parent-teacher communication. Please note that these groups are to be used only for messages and questions related to the class material and homework. All other communications (absences, payments, administrative inquiries, etc.) shall be through the school’s email address at school@imamhossein.ca.


  • If the student is sick and can’t come to school one day, please inform us by email.
  • If the student misses a class or classes due to illness or a trip, the teacher will inform the parents/you on what should be covered at home. If the parents/you request a make-up class, or if the teacher decides that a make-up class is required, it will be scheduled at an extra cost.
  • To Parents: Teachers reserve the right, at their sole discretion, to ask parents/guardians to pick up any student that shows signs of illness (even the sniffles). Parents must be available to pick up the student at that time.

Should you have any questions regarding the IHCCO Persian School, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email at school@imamhossein.ca.

We look forward to a fruitful year of learning together!
