About L. Ron Hubbard
L. Ron Hubbard was an American writer and philosopher who became interested in education as a young man teaching English in a native school in Guam during the 1920s.
Over the next forty years, Mr. Hubbard continued his research into education, and by the early 1960's, he saw fully that declining educational standards were having a profound effect on the learning abilities of people from all walks of life. His investigation of this decline, and research regarding the basic laws of education led to a revolutionary development in the field—a technology of study. His lectures on this work were recorded and formed the basis for a whole approach to teaching and learning (referred to as Study Technology or simply Study Tech).
In an article written in 1950, Mr. Hubbard said:
"An educational program which begins with the child's parents, progresses through kindergarten and grade school, through high school and into college and preserves at every step the individuality, the native ambitions, intelligence, abilities and dynamics of the individual, is the best bastion against not only mediocrity but any and all enemies of mankind."
Delphian School owes a debt of gratitude to humanitarian and author L. Ron Hubbard for his writings on children, education, ethics and organization, which continue to provide insight and inspiration to the school’s mission and activities.
