Delphian is not a typical educational experience. Here, students don’t memorize facts only to forget them after the test—memorizing is not learning. Our students are taught to evaluate by comparing an idea they’re studying to other concepts they’ve already learned. They explain it, demonstrate it, teach it to someone else, and apply it to their lives. In the end, it’s not just another fact to be memorized and abandoned; it’s been incorporated into the larger structure of their education. And in the process, our students have learned to think and reason.
Practical, hands-on experience is essential to learning. That’s why all Delphian students, beginning with our youngest learners, spend time putting their knowledge into practice. By the time they graduate, students have devoted over 1,000 hours to practical field activities, projects, and internships or apprenticeships.
At the heart of the Delphian academic program is Study Technology
, a process for learning how to learn developed by American author and educator, L. Ron Hubbard
. Once students master Study Tech, they can apply it to anything they want to learn, in school and in life.
The Delphian curriculum covers the full spectrum of core academic subjects: literature, math, science, languages, history, and the arts. Students also focus on ethics and integrity, leadership, life skills, computer technology, and physical education. And they choose from an expansive selection of elective courses.
The best part? Our students work one-on-one with a curriculum specialist to develop their own, individual program of study within the core curriculum. They work to fill in any gaps in their previous educations, bolster areas that may need extra attention, and follow their personal academic passions. Students can move as quickly through their courses as they like, as long as they demonstrate that they understand and can apply the material.
