In addition to rounding out academic studies in literature, mathematics, writing, science, history and government, High School students gain practical understanding and experience in the subjects of leadership, integrity and logic, as well as management and organizational skills. They also become a vital element in the functioning of the school, taking on tasks of increased responsibility, requiring higher and higher levels of competence.
Our students learn to function in a professional manner, experience the value of living responsibly and gain the academic knowledge and practical skills needed to confidently and competently take the next step in life. Whether that step is into further formal education or directly into the professional world, a Delphi graduate walks forward into life with a great deal of certainty and ability.
Forms and Levels versus Grades
Through Middle School, we refer to each level as a Form, while the High School uses Freshman through Senior Levels; the abilities and knowledge the student acquires at each Form or Level are mapped out in explicit graduation requirements.
Because Forms and Levels provide individualized student paths to specific goals, students can enroll at any time during the school year. This structure makes it possible for a student to move forward, regardless of age, once all the graduation requirements for a Form or Level have been met. In this way, each student advances as rapidly as he or she is learning and demonstrating competence, rather than having that progress controlled by the calendar or the progress of peers.
The SAT Reasoning Test* (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States.
