Code of Conduct


Mt. Airy Learning Tree (MALT) believes our community should be truly open for everyone. We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, national origin, or religion.

Code of Conduct

It is the responsibility of all MALT instructors and students to:

  1. Foster an education community supportive of continued learning;
  2. Maintain the safety and welfare of all members in our MALT community; and
  3. Respect the rights of others, engage in civil discourse, and refrain from harassment or discrimination.

MALT reserves the right to remove instructors and students who engage in any disruptive, disrespectful, and/or unlawful behaviors.

Common Sense and Consideration

Common sense and consideration for others are what we aim to practice at all times. All MALT class venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.

Unacceptable behaviors include:

  • Intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any MALT student or instructor towards another person.
  • Drinking during class in instances when alcohol is not an identified part of the class environment (i.e., wine tasting).

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior

Anyone made aware of unacceptable behavior is expected to comply with MALT policies immediately. If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, MALT will take any appropriate action, as necessary, including expulsion from the course without refund.

What to do if you Witness or are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior

If you are a MALT student or instructor and witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify the MALT office as soon as possible: (215) 843-6333.

Age Policy

Except where noted in our course catalog, all classes are for ages 18 and up. Adult students may not bring their children to class without the explicit permission from the MALT office and instructor.


Students take courses at their own personal liability and agree to waive and release MALT administrators and staff from any and all claims. The opinions and recommendations expressed by instructors are personal. MALT is not responsible for faculty views.


Access for students with disabilities varies by venue. Please let us know if you have limitations climbing stairs or have difficulty walking. Alerting us will help us make adjustments to the extent possible.
