Middle School students enjoy a wide variety of activities outside the classroom.
We refer to these as "Co-Curricular" since they include subjects essential to a well-rounded
educational experience and thus are an integral piece of the overall program. As part of Delphi's Co-Curricular program, students
participate in interscholastic sports and attend daily classes in their choice
of Arts (ceramics, art, music, choir, drama, etc.).
The Delphian School has an active music and arts program for Middle School students.
In music, students may join the choir or band or take lessons on individual instruments.
Theater enthusiasts can participate in our major annual production for Parents Weekend,
as well as other performances produced throughout the school year. In fine arts
and crafts, the school typically offers classes in ceramics, sculpting, drawing and painting,
graphic design and special studies areas.
A variety of courses in the arts and sciences are offered to students as electives which can be added to their academic programs.
Emphasis in sports and athletics is on discipline, hard work, team spirit and fun.
At the Middle School level, interscholastic and intramural competition occurs in soccer,
volleyball and basketball. Other activities vary seasonally and may include horseback
riding, swimming, bowling, golf, skiing, hiking, archery and running.
Students work to achieve an overall score of at least the 65th percentile for age
class on the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports program. Physical development and coordination are actively pursued for their own sake and
as a balance to the academic program.
