Delphian was founded in 1976 by a group of educators concerned about the decline in the standards of American education. Delphian curriculum integrates innovative study methods recognized worldwide as a breakthrough in education. By learning how to study, without memorization or memory tricks, students develop the confidence and knowledge to tackle the most challenging subjects and learn anything on their own. They become their own best teacher.
All Delphian students spend time putting their knowledge into practice. By the time they graduate, students have devoted over 1,000 hours to practical field activities, projects, and internships or apprenticeships.
Delphian's curriculum covers the full spectrum of core academic subjects: literature, math, science, languages, history, and the arts. Students also take courses focusing on ethics and integrity, leadership, life skills, computer technology, and physical education. And they choose from an expansive selection of elective courses.
Our students work one-on-one with a curriculum specialist to develop their own, individual program of academic study to agument the core curriculum. They work to fill in any gaps in their previous educations, bolster areas that may need extra attention, and follow their personal academic passions.
Because of the independent study nature of our program, students can move as quickly through their courses as they like, as long as they demonstrate that they understand and can apply the material.
Delphian's student body takes a highly active role in all school activities, giving each student the opportunity to learn personal lessons about responsibility, ethics, integrity, and leadership.
Once academic classes are finished, our students jump into a variety of afternoon activities sports, music, art, drama, photography and dozens more elective courses. In their evening 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.
Student Council 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.
Delphian School graduates are accepted at top ranked colleges and universities across the United States. 95% get accepted into their top choice colleges.
