Helping Haiti

Delphi Academy Form 1 and 2 students create a big check to symbolize the school’s quick call to action for the Haitian relief effort.






Ms. Harris and Ms. Swete capped off the coin drive with a Friday afternoon bake sale raising another $500. All the proceeds of this fundraiser went to the American Red Cross.

The students at Delphi Academy in Milton raised over $2500.00 for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. Delphi teachers, Amanda Harris from Braintree and Adrian Swete from Abington, rallied up the students and organized a school-wide coin drive. So many of our students have family in Haiti. When we proposed a fund raiser the students immediately went to work, says Ms. Swete. Over $2000 in coins were collected in a two week period.

New Horizons

This video was created over 25 years ago as an aid to understanding Delphian School’s mission and educational approach. While photos in this video have been updated, the message remains strong, a potent commentary on the decline of modern education and Delphian’s purpose to revert this decline, one graduate at a time.


Delphi Parents Gain Valuable Tools

[img_assist|nid=98|title=|desc=|link=none|align=center|width=360|height=239]

On Saturday, November 8th, Delphi Academy of Boston held its annual Study Technology Workshop, based on the Works of L. Ron Hubbard, for parents, friends and family of Delphi students.

Below are some success stories of the attendees.  I hope you enjoy them.

"I learned how to identify the three most important and critical barriers for learning and how to cope with them.  I will be able to utilize these simple methods to help both my child and myself to deal with the difficulties in the process of learning in our lives. Thank you!" — H.X.

"I have learned a systematic approach to learning.  This approach will help me confront barriers in my own learning by encouraging me to take steps that I know I should to understand information.  The workshop has also provided me with a systematic approach to helping others understand what they are trying to learn." — S.B.

"I began this class to learn how to be more effective in my classroom and I wanted to become a better student in the future.  The class has certainly been very effective in achieving these two goals.  I will easily be able to identify the three primary obstacles to learning in the future and I will have solutions for my students.  I will also be able to identify when I am struggling with my studies and quickly be able to get on the right path." — R.H.

"I would like to thank Delphi Academy for holding such a great workshop!  I have just gained information that will help me in my studies and to help my child and those who I come in contact to better themselves.  Learning is the process making things around you better.  Having the proper knowledge and knowing how to use it is vital in life. Thank you." — L.W.

"What I have learned and gotten from this workshop is that nothing is too hard.  You must take it one step at a time.  If you pass over words that you don’t know then you might not understand the things that come ahead.  I also realized that you never stop learning and life gets harder as you live, so the methods will come in handy when something is misunderstood during your day to day life.  I feel that I will use these teachings in college and after college as well.  I will teach these things to my friends and family to enrich their lives and help them to understand what is misunderstood." — J.P.
 


Form 6 Student ‘Makes A Difference’ In Many Ways

[img_assist|nid=96|title=|desc=|link=none|align=none|width=360|height=270]

Olivia demonstrates responsibility not only for her own education but for the community at large.  This year she took on three community service projects that span a wide gamut.  The first was a recycling project.  Because of Olivia’s passion to care for the planet a school wide system is now in place and awareness about conservation is prevalent amongst the entire school community.

The second project she took on is raising awareness about hunger statistics.  To this end she is a Feed The Need Volunteer.  Over the past several years she has helped to sort and box over 8000 cans that were distributed to local food pantries.

Finally, Olivia volunteers one full day a week at an assisted living community.  She cheerfully helps residents to their rooms, delivers packages, reads to the guests and organizes fun activities.  For this service Olivia received a "Make A Difference Award" from the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.


Form 5 Student Wins Boston Globe Art Contest

In February, four Delphi Boston Form 5 students received recognition for their talents after submitting work to The Boston Globe/Scholastic Art Awards competition for 2009. Olivia Love received Honorable Mention for her mixed-media illustration depicting the benefits of recycling and caring for our planet. Samantha Fabien was awarded a Silver Key for her photograph and Haiku entitled “Icicles”. Michael Bowman and Ella Rouelle were among 350 students (out of 5,274 entries) to receive a Gold Key for the region and whose artwork has been forwarded to New York City for national judging. Michael entered a color digital landscape photograph and Ella submitted an original pencil illustration. Come see their work on display in the main hallway!

This year, more than 100,000 works of art and writing were submitted by more than 77,000 young people in grades 7 through 12. Of these, about 33,000 received regional awards and were celebrated in local ceremonies; many of these winners earned scholarships through arrangements with local colleges. About 10,000 of the regional winners advanced to the national competition.

We congratulate our winners for their achievements, await the results from the national judging and look forward to taking part in this 86 year old competition in the future!
