Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Our philosophy of education is simple. Children should master their basic tools very well, then learn to really use what they learn. Their education becomes something they build and own, not something piled onto them.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Delphi Academy Mission Statement:

Giving young people a rich academic background, a strong sense of ethics and a broad range of abilities to successfully launch them into higher education, a career and life itself.

More broadly, help build a better world through effective education.


Although many of these attributes are not developed in preschool, we feel it is never too early to instill a purpose and a love of learning in an individual.
