  • It has wonderful state of the art athletic facilities where you can practice your favorite sport at a competitive level: Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Basketball, Volleyball, Track & Field, Tennis, Cheerleading, Archery, Horseback Riding, among others.
  • It is fully equipped with its own library, tech lab, chemistry lab, shop, art and music areas, theater, cafeteria and coffee shop, among many other goodies.
  • The dorms and student living areas are more than adequate and comfortable for student life. The food is also very healthy and nutritious.
  • There are many extra-curricular activities available like: Theater, Photography, Film, Arts, Music, Science, Robotics, among many others.
  • Students are constantly taken on trips to key businesses and cities (E.g. Google Headquarters, New York Stock Exchange, Harley Davidson, to name a few) and participate in Internship programs to further their education and career interests.
  • Rules are strict (E.g. no bullying, no drugs nor smoking) and discipline is high (E.g. be on time, make your bed, complete all your assignments, go to bed at a specific time, etc.) which make for a safe environment and help students become responsible young adults by the time they graduate.
  • The staff at the Delphian School is competent, caring and completely focused on the wellbeing and education of their students. This is a very important factor that you don’t see in many other schools.
  • It has a very special study program and teaching method where students learn all their subjects with 100% accuracy and aren't afraid of taking exams.
  • But above all, students are busy all the time, they are productive, they get a sense of belonging to a great group of youngsters (just like themselves) while maintaining their own individuality, they are taught to be ethical, loyal and responsible, they are free to pursue their interests and are really happy in general. Which is what I, as a parent, would want for my children: for them to be happy, productive and responsible individuals, and what better way to be all that than in a healthy and safe environment as well.
