School Reviews

My son has attended Delphi Academy for 5 years now and has flourished in the Delphi environment. A practical curriculum allows children the opportunity to be directly invested in their learning and allows them to see immediate rewards for their hard work. The educators at Delphi know exactly what tools to use in order to keep the children engaged and encouraged - we love them all! The reading program is simply amazing - my son''s vocabulary is larger than many adults I know and he is only 10. He has grown more inquisitive and intrigued with each lesson mastered. It has been wonderful watching him thrive both academically, socially and physically. Delphi was definitely the best choice for our son.

My 6 yo son has been attending the Milton campus of Delphi Academy since he was 2.9 yo. At the end of seven weeks in summer camp he had passed the beginning stsges of knowing how to read! The education the children receive is second to none!

My two children attending Delphi have a passion for reading and learning and you can''t put a price on that. The academics are challenging and their approach ensures that students won''t advance to the next lesson without first demonstrating proficiency in what they''ve learned. So you can trust that your child is truly learning. The teachers and administrators care about what they do and are always available to parents. I have visited numerous other schools and no other approach to learning compares to Delphi.

One of the best investments that you can make as a parent is investing in your kids education. I looked at different private schools in and around the Milton area but finally decided on Delphi. It was their curriculum that set them apart from the rest of the pack. I was very impressed with Delphi''s approach to learning, and their focus on teaching kids at their own individual pace. They put a lot of emphasis on reading and writing. It was amazing to see my 3 year old reading and writing so quickly. They also focus on making sure the students understand the meaning of the words that they are reading. In addition to reading and writing, Delphi Academy has done a great job teaching my kids math. Delphi Academy has an amazing teaching process and the results have exceeded my expectations. They take time teaching kids based on their level. Delphi doesn''t rush kids or teach to take a test, as is seen in public schools. At Delphi they know that each kid is different and special and they give students the confidence in themselves to get better every day. Also, they do NOT have a religious agenda. I am Catholic, and as a parent I prefer to teach my kids our religious values.
