I got so many chances for internships and projects relating to my career interests as well. I have grown in every way as an individual.

Academics:

The academics at Delphian are like no other. You will never find another school that cares so deeply for its student's ability to learn and master materials. My favorite part of Delphi's curriculum was its wide range of subjects and deep focus on philosophy and different perspectives on historical events.

Athletics:

The athletic director, Brandon Lidgard, encourages all students to take opportunities and push themselves in any sport. Everyone participates and the teams create lasting bonds, as well as hold the highest standards for sportsmanship. Through competitive teams and challenging physical activities, all students are bettered through sports.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
Play and choir are taken very seriously at Delphian. The choir team places in states almost every year, and multiple plays are put on each year. The students who participate are challenged to do their best and spend many hours practicing to perfection.

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
Delphian offers many volunteer opportunities, making it very different from other schools. Delphian's students enjoy volunteering their time and helping out the community. Additionally, activities are planned by students each weekend to make it more interesting.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
The dorms are a key factor in boarding school life. You can see your best friends every day and constantly talk to others. Delphian also puts on an event every year called "Dorm Spirit Night" where dorms compete against each other in relays and other games.

Dining:

1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
The dining room at Delphi is a comfortable but also classy space. Students enjoy it three times daily with healthy meals prepared by our catering service, Sage Dining. There is a diverse selection of food and a salad and sandwich bar to create your meals.

Delphian is located on a hill overlooking the town of Sheridan. The sprawling fields and incredible views never got old.
