The Board, administration, teachers and parents of Delta Academy believe that a school system should provide a basic academic curriculum for both college bound students and those who plan to enter the workforce.
We believe that a school should endeavor to develop creativity, independence, integrity, honesty and respect for authority, property and the rights of others.
Honor can be learned, and at Delta Academy we have included it as an integral part of each student's learning experience.
We believe that the teacher is the ultimate component in providing the varied learning opportunities in a controlled atmosphere of free expression and student participation.
All faculty members and administrators are expected to be professional at all times.
The teachers not only must facilitate learning to stimulate it, guide it and ensure that it happens but must develop inquiry and value clarification among their students.
