Learning never stops.
Delphian is a vibrant learning environment 24/7.
Boarding school is a 24/7 learning environment that challenges students to develop decision-making skills, time management abilities, and a strong sense of independence and responsibility.Academics
are, of course, a huge part of each weekday. Once classes are finished, our students jump into a variety of afternoon activities
– sports, music, art, drama, photography and many more elective courses to keep them challenged. In their downtime, Delphian students might get together with friends in the recreation room, work on their jump shots in the gym, participate in a choir sectional, get in some extra study time, or just relax in the dorm. One thing’s for sure: our students never have to look too far to find a friend, a study partner, or a teammate.
More than three-quarters of our students are boarders, and they do more than live here—they own the school. Our students take responsibility for everything from keeping their dormitories clean to caring for the grounds to managing the snack bar and planning and organizing weekend trips
members do much of the weekend activity planning, which might include heading off campus to catch a play, movie, or sporting event in Portland; take part in a community service activity; go ice skating or skiing, camping or shopping. On-campus events might include a nighttime game of Capture the Flag and a bonfire, a special dance, or Friday Night Performance
, where students take the stage to sing, act, dance, or perform songs from their favorite bands.
