Message to Prospective Families Regarding COVID-19
Delphian has decided to close our campus to day students and non-essential visitors effective Tuesday, March 17 in keeping with Oregon Governor Brown’s executive order. Although no member of the Delphian community has been diagnosed with the virus, we feel it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Our admissions office is working remotely and available to prospective families, who are interested in applying for either our summer or school year programs. Call our admissions office at 800-626-6610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org You should expect a response within 24 hours, usually sooner.
We are looking forward to being able to re-open our campus, once it is safe to do so, for tours and in-person interviews with prospective families. In the meantime, we are ready to receive and reply to your admissions inquiries!

What if my current school is closed and I can’t get the required documentation like teacher recommendations and school transcripts?
Applicants should submit any required documents when possible, and we will work with you to discuss receipt of any outstanding documents or the potential to use substitute documents.

How are you addressing the safety issues for the staff, faculty and boarding students who are still on campus?
Although we have closed our campus to all day students and visitors, we allowed boarding students to remain on campus due to travel restrictions and health risks related to travel. We have rigid social distancing protocols in place, the school is being disinfected several times daily, and we are encouraging proper hygiene measures with all students and staff. All off-campus trips for students have been cancelled and administrative staff are working from home. Most faculty live on the campus and are keeping their travel off the campus to an absolute minimum. Regular class schedules and activities (with modifications to accommodate social distancing) are occurring to keep our students continuing on their studies and mentally and physically fit.
If Delphian is closed, how are you supporting your students who are at home and unable to attend their classes?
We are utilizing online, virtual learning with our students who are off campus in order to ensure they are able to progress and participate in seminars and activities with their fellow students and to keep that social connection. Dedicated online instructors have been allocated to support these students and to coordinate with their families regularly to keep academic progress continuing. From online math seminars with their teachers to PE classes with their physical education coach, we are making every effort to connect our Delphian families and to create a consistent daily schedule for them.
