Personal Teachers

Delphian personal teachers with studentsBecause children of Elementary and Middle School age need a greater level of care and attention than older students, all boarding students enrolling in the Elementary and Middle Schools are assigned Personal Teachers. 

The Personal Teacher is a faculty or staff member who helps provide the extra care and attention for a child of this age group who is living away from home. Personal Teachers assist the parents by overseeing the welfare of younger boarding children in a variety of ways.

Personal Teachers eat most meals with their students. They oversee their schedules, visit with them at bedtime and spend time together on weekends. They're available to help these younger students in their burgeoning independence by assisting them from time to time with their laundry or perhaps by helping them to make healthy choices at meals. Above all, Personal Teachers can be trusted friends to the children, someone they know they can go to for help when they need it.

Personal Teachers maintain direct communication with the parents concerning the child's growth and development while at the school. They regularly update the parents on the student's progress through the program as well as any snags or bumps they may be experiencing. It is the role of the Personal Teacher to assist the parents in the raising of their child even as it is the role of the school to assist the parents in their children's education.

A successful community such as Delphi's isn't possible without keeping the family closely involved. Therefore, an abundance of communication among students, parents, and the Personal Teacher is not merely helpful, but vital. Our parents play an indispensable role in the Delphi Program.
