L. Ron Hubbard was a writer, an engineer, a philosopher, an educator and a researcher whose discoveries and writings cover a wide range of secular (non-religious) activity.
Mr. Hubbard studied and wrote at length about methods of learning which markedly improve a student's ability to understand and apply what is being studied. These breakthrough methods are part of the study tools learned by all Delphian students and are a cornerstone of Delphian’s successful approach to education.
For this reason, many people associate the school with Mr. Hubbard, and since Mr. Hubbard is the founder of the religious philosophy known as Scientology, Delphian has become incorrectly termed a "Scientology school" by some online news sites.
We welcome and encourage diversity of all kinds in our school community (we embrace free and open inquiry and the diverse perspectives of people of different backgrounds, religions and cultures). As a result, there are staff and children in attendance at Delphian who are members of many faiths, including Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism and Scientology, and representative of different denominations and sects.
Mr. Hubbard also researched and wrote extensively on the subjects of logic, ethics, leadership and communication. Delphian students study these subjects, and some of their materials include data selected from Mr. Hubbard's secular research in these areas.
Mr. Hubbard's book entitled, The Way to Happiness, is a common sense moral code, and students study this work to understand the basic, moral agreements that we expect all members of our community to follow.
