At Delphi Academy, we're helping students take on life! Our philosophy of education is simple.
Students should master their basic tools very well - then be able to really use what they learn. We emphasize practical application and encourage our students to evaluate new information in relation to the real world.
We want to see our students maintain their individuality while being self-motivated, confident, active and purposeful individuals capable of pursuing and reaching their chosen goals.

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!

the only words I have for this school is that it's the best! Teachers are truly committed to the child`s overall development, help the child learn to learn, and create an environment where the child truly flourishes. Develops a strong character in its students, like integrity, compassion, and respect and build skills like leadership through everyday learning at a very young age. There hasn`t been a single day in 5 yrs my son didn`t want to go to school in the morning and didn`t want to come back home in the evening. He loves his school, teachers, and friends.

My son started Delphi from kindergarten. Delphi offers individual pace for each kid and encourages them not only reach high academic standards but also develop well-rounded skills and take responsibility. We spend 2 years happily with Ms. Brenda and Ms. Maria in Delphi. For 2nd grade, we go to home school instead of Delphi since we moved to Sunnyvale, which makes the commute to Delphi, not an easy task. During the year I always worry about my son during the school day, transitions between home school and afternoon school. A family becomes a fight place to get him the same level of decent work as before. He simply did not care about the quality of work and lose his goal. After a year of struggling and fighting, we made our decision to go back to Delphi for 3rd grade. Since then everything goes back to order. I see how confident, responsible and positive he becomes, how capable he is now to make the correct choice, and how amazing he could calm me down sometimes with his learnings at school from communication class. Big thanks to Ms. Victoria and Delphi teachers and staff who always put the children first, who give each student the time and attention they need without creating stress. My family feels so lucky to be with Delphi again.

Delphi is an exceptional school that ensures that kids succeed. The teachers and staff are caring, and recognize that every child is unique, and needs individual attention. The school ensures the child masters what they have learned, ensuring a strong foundation. Weekly field trips at Delphi allows hand-on experience. The school gets involved in community service, in turn teaching the kids to be kind and compassionate.

Our son Jojo will be graduating middle school this year. He has been a Delphi student since 2011, and I can confidently say that we could not have chosen a better school for him! Delphi has given him a strong foundation that has completely prepared him to handle high school with poise. Delphi's holistic approach to learning goes way beyond just academic learning. The school prepares students to become well-rounded socially-conscious adults. And last but not least, the school's after-school program and summer camp are the best things a working parent could hope for because Delphi makes logistics a non-issue. If you are looking for the best school experience for your child, look no further and enroll him/her at Delphi.

What did I found out after joining and spending 5 yrs? The school delivered everything it promised and more. There is nothing I don`t like about school. They don`t just focus on academics but overall child development and ensures the child is taught to love to learn and how to learn this school is the best thing you can do for your child. There is nothing I don`t like about this school and my son is thriving in the school. He loves to learn, there is no pressure for him to perform but he is doing great in every aspect!

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.
