School Notes:

  • Early Reading. Delphi Academy excels at teaching first-time readers by undercutting reading basics in a way that makes learning to read very simple and lots of fun.
  • Academic Basics. Children have a natural thirst for learning and curiosity about the world around them. Our program nourishes this innate drive and comfortably introduces the young student to some of the most fundamental academic basics.
  • Personalized Learning. Delphi Academy's entire approach to learning is focused on the individual student. Even at the kindergarten level, each child receives an individualized program based on current abilities and skills.
  • Social Skills. Our experienced faculty is skilled in helping students adjust to working and playing together with other children. Through various social games, they learn skills ina small, relaxed atmosphere.
  • Dynamic Environment. The facilities at Delphi Academy are cheery, clean and bright, and have been designed to encourage lots of activity in our students.
  • Field Trips. Helping children connect what they are learning with real-life experiences is a major focus of our program. Our students enjoy excursions that might include animal sanctuaries, working farms, libraries, museums, and even a grocer's eye view of a supermarket.
