At Delphi Academy, we're helping students take on life! Our philosophy of education is simple.

School Notes:

Welcome! Part of a renowned, nationwide network of private schools, Delphi Academy has been the Bay Area leader in competency-based education since 1986. While many schools are just now seeing the benefits of personalized, student-centered, proficiency-based education, the Delphi Program has been delivering this approach for nearly 40 years. The result: we've become expert at giving students effective study skills that help them to enjoy the process of learning, to think and act independently, and exercise confidence in their abilities. Our goal is to have each student succeeding, learning and thriving on a personalized educational program that they love. Here's how we do it:
  • 1. Empower Them as Students
  • 2. Get Personal
  • 3. Put Ethics & Integrity at the Center
  • 4. Fully Achieve the Basics
  • 5. Emphasize Literacy
  • 6. Keep it Real
  • 7. Involve Parents
  • 8. Demand Competence & Accountability, Not Time Spent
Delphi students go on weekly field trips to gain first hand knowledge and life experiences. They participate in clubs such as Student Council, Yearbook, Chess, Tinkering and Gardening. They work as a team to be of benefit to their community with food and toy drives. They are encouraged to pursue their interests, are assisted to explore and understand a variety of potential professions, and to learn both independently and in group discussions. Students learn about current events, participate in a rich art program and get out into the community. Physical education is an important part of the curriculum at all levels. Overall, academics are strong while"extras" are numerous and vital at Delphi Academy!

My son attended Delphi Academy from K-8th grade and found the transition to high school very easy. He continues to get straight A's and is taking many honors classes. He gained excellent study habits and is involved in many activities. The friends he made at Delphi are still close even though they are not all at the same high school. This is a great school for entrance into a private Bay Area high school.
