An ideal balance.
A well-rounded education requires more than a focus on core subjects like math, English, science, and history. Arts and athletics are also important components. That’s why each afternoon, Delphian students take part in a wide variety of elective activities outside the classroom. We refer to these regularly scheduled afternoon classes as “co-curricular” as they include subjects we consider essential to acquiring a full education. All Delphian students are required to participate in elective afternoon classes.
In afternoon classes, you may find yourself singing with our award-winning choirs (more than half of Delphian’s Upper School students are members). Taking corner kicks for the soccer team. Setting up a photoshoot. Writing a script and then producing a video. Focusing on your Warrior pose in yoga exercise class (physical poses only). Perfecting your backhand on the tennis court. Whatever you do, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to share your talent and skills with an audience, whether it’s sports fans cheering you on from the sidelines or a standing ovation at curtain call.
Co-Curricular activities may include music, art, pottery, drama, choir, computers, creative writing, video production, photography, woodshop, yoga (as exercise), weightlifting, and a variety of interscholastic sports such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball and tennis.
