Delphi Academy Of Los Angeles

  • Located on a beautiful 8-acre campus surrounded by equestrian trails in Lake View Terrace, Delphi Academy has been helping children to become motivated, industrious students since 1984. There is no memorization of facts at Delphi, but rather students study for understanding, application and 100% mastery.
  • To this end, demonstration and practical application of ideas and concepts can be found throughout the program.
  • The goal is to attain a high standard of competence in each subject, building a firm foundation for study at higher levels.
  • Literacy is emphasized at Delphi because it is the key to broad understanding of concepts and cultures.
  • A step-by-step pathway to full comprehension combined with a high-volume, rich literature program results in highly literate, competent students who can meet the demands of college requirements without difficulty.
  • Mutual respect and communication between students, teachers and parents is encouraged so that students can thrive in a supportive, caring community of peers and adults.
  • Leadership skills, community service, and personal integrity are developed as essential parts of our curriculum.
  • With a comprehensive curriculum of over 300 courses, state-of-the-art facilities and a professional and experienced faculty, Delphi Academy is truly a 21st century school.

Through many years of association with Delphi, I'd like to recommend it with the highest regard. Over the years, 3 of my children attended Delphi for various number of years. Later, 3 of my daughters and my daughter in law worked for Delphi as teachers. My children's Mother work at Delphi over 20 years and I worked at Delphi for 11 years. I've watched introverted children gain confidence to tackle the world and become very extroverted.I've watched excited and enthusiastic children go through the program and graduate with that excitement and enthusiasm even stronger.Delphi prepares children with abundant survival ability and an incredible outlook on life!As a final note, I am again a staff member with Delphi after being gone for 12 years! With is a happy place for staff and students.Carl Watts

My daughter is in the preschool at Delphi and she loves it. She doesn't want to leave at the end of the day! The school is very safe and the teachers are extremely hands-on and trustworthy. The administrative staff is very supportive of the students and families. Many have been there for decades, ushering in the next generation of Delphi students. They are dedicated to ensuring that the kids get a great education!

We chose Delphi Academy to ensure they had a great foundation before confronting the world Everyday we find out something new They`re learned. The way the teachers have helped our kids develop his individuality, while at the same time emphasizing self-discipline and respect towards others, has truly been a heartening experience. My daughters love going everyday and if I say they can stay all day and all night there . Safe to say you can`t go wrong here! We have both of our kids enrolled and couldn`t be more pleased with the love and care and attention they get from the amazing staff. It feels more like a good family and I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.

I knew of Delphi Academy of Los Angeles back in 1991, my husband went to school here. It wasn't until 1997 that I actually had the privilege to experience exactly what this program offers. As a new employee I was trained to understand the teaching methods they use to ensure that each student thrives as an individual and is able to APPLY what it is they learn. Each student is learning with enthusiasm and has a desire to learn each subject they study because they know that it will be applied to their life. I enjoy seeing students skip into school and excited to be here every morning and throughout the day. I have been impressed with how the School, Parent and Student all work together helping the student thrive. I highly recommend if you are a parent, you call in to ask for a tour of the school.

My granddaughter attends Delphi Academy and I've seen her grow by leaps and bounds both academically and socially since day one. Delphi has a strong academic program; my granddaughter was reading at age 4! I've also seen her take on more and more responsibility daily; handling things by herself and assisting others who need help. I see this as a reflection of Delphi's culture of guiding students to be more independent and to care about those around them. I am just so excited that she is at Delphi and would not want her to be anywhere else!

Our daughter has just graduated from Delphi LA. The curriculum is designed so the students understand what they are learning. It amazed us on the speed our daughter could accomplish her studies. We are totally grateful to have had such a dedicated staff and the care level of the staff is amazing. Our daughter is ready to do anything she wants and has the tools to do so. Thanks Delphi LA.

I can honestly say that Delphi Academy rocks. I am laughing but I really mean it.I did a lot of research for a good school for my girls. The minute I toured Delphi, I knew I had found the right school. The children were all so happy and smiling and so easy to approach and talk to. I was so impressed by the little ones already reading! My 3 1/2 year old was very advanced and had I put her in another school she would have had to wait several years to be put in the age level class for her reading ability and held back as a result! But at Delphi, she received individual attention so as to let her progress at her own speed.I also appreciate the student/teacher ratio. Each student receives a lot of individual attention.The students are learning by observing and applying the data they read about. And of course they are taught to study independently and do not memorize.I see my daughters becoming independent thinkers/learners. They are given responsibility and are very competent and confident of their own abilities. You don't hear any whining hereI know for a fact that my girls and the other students are being set up for life. I cannot say enough about Delphi. I feel so happy and fortunate as a parent to have found you. Thank you!

I graduated from Delphi and now my daughter who is 4 attends. My 18 month will be starting preschool in the fall. This school is a gem. All the teachers and faculty really care about the well being of each student. The program caters to each student individually, allowing them to go at their own pace. Not only are the academics wonderful, but there are so many activities the students can participate in. I personally loved the internships I was able to do as a high school student, gaining practical experience in the real world. I can`t put into words how great this school is. I definitely recommend it.

My daughter attended Delphi La since she was 5 years old. Delphi teaches phonics at an early early which therefore enabled my daughter to read very young. The programs are set up independently for each individual since no child is the same. If they need more time or are faster than others, it is adjusted accordingly.The classes are kept small, the teachers are very loving and the children are so happy. The grounds are safe, no drugs or threats from other children. I went to work knowing that my child was in the best of care and learning. She usually was resistant to leaving!There is a genuine affinity and respect for children at Delphi. I highly recommend this school.

My daughter Started at age 24 months in Preschool and moved up until in TK class, and again attended when she was a bit older finishing K and 1st. I found great solace originally when I wasn't completely ready to leave her ... And knew she had a well-rounded day, and lots of love and care. As this year comes to a close almost, I can firmly say we have no doubts as to the value this school brings, and we have security for our first daughter, (who's attended for several school years now), in its reliability and basically there are awesome things about Delphi's program, it's comprehensive reading foundation, and more.

My daughter attended Delphi for 10 years, Though she has now graduated, I thought I would share my experiences. She has been an executive with a very successful software company that coincidentally was started by another Delphi graduate. These kids {now adults} have known one another since childhood and remain friends to this day. There are many of them that we have known since age four and through the years have bonded and grown the most loving and sincere friendships. Many of their children attend Delphi now. The Delphi program allows students to study at their own pace, whether it be faster than average or slower. It ensures that each student learns the data and can use it in their lives.I have been on staff for years and can't imagine a better school. There is no bullying or drugs here and the students all look out for and care for one another. It is a very close relationship. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a safe and sane environment, to come check out Delphi Academy. We have very happy prospering children here.

Our twin sons started at Delphi just before they turned 2. I was nervous about finding the right place for them, as they`re my first babies and like any mom, I wanted to make sure they`d be happy. They`ve been there now for almost six months, and they love it. So do we! There is time for naps, lots of time for play, snacks and lunch. They fit it all in, and during "summer camp" they do the coolest things! Music classes, cooking classes, and they have days with water play too. I love the Delphi family; the teachers are amazing and so good with my boys. I feel comfortable having them there and I know it`s a good place for them.

There is no other school like it! Both my husband and I are Delphi LA grads and proud to send both our kids to Delphi starting as soon as they were school age (now high school and 2nd grade). The curriculum designed for the students to actually apply what they learn and the absolutely incredible dedicated staff are world-class. My 7-year old is a reading addict, having read more than 200 books this year, and my 13-year old is a straight A student, and a year ahead for high school graduation. Thank you for making this incredible school available to us!

I could not be happier with the education and care my children are experiencing at Delphi. My daughter is currently in the preschool and my son is in first grade. Both are flourishing, and I am so happy that they are in a safe environment that fosters their love of life and learning. I feel like the teachers and administrative staff at Delphi truly believe in supporting students and lifting them up to the best they can be, as opposed to trying to control them or make them "behave." With young children like mine, this is a challenge, but their teachers handle it beautifully. Thanks, Delphi!

A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
