Artist. Athlete. Volunteer. We see your interests as essentials, not extras.
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' rather than extra-curricular, as they include subjects we consider essential to acquiring a full education. All Delphian students participate in elective afternoon co-curricular classes, which they choose based on their own interests.
In afternoon classes, you may find yourself singing with our award-winning choirs (nearly 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 class. Designing and coding a video game. 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 creative activities such as music, art, ceramic arts, drama, choir, technology, creative writing, video production, photography, and woodshop; or physical activities such as conditioning or power yoga and a variety of interscholastic sports such as soccer, volleyball, track and field, cross-country, basketball, baseball, softball and tennis.
Since we encourage our students to do everything they do as professionally as possible, these activities lead inevitably to participation in some public demonstration of skill. For sports, it is through interscholastic competitions or individual sporting meets. In the arts, it may be through choir and instrumental performances, plays, or painting and ceramic arts competitions and exhibits.
