How it Began

Delphi Schools

In 1973, Delphi Schools, Inc.™ was formed by a dedicated group of educators with a vision for a new kind of school—a school that encompassed more than academics, that developed in each student a strong sense of personal ethics, conviction and purpose, that didn’t advance a student based on age but by accomplishment and instilled in each student the basic tools of study not just to “get by” but to learn anything.

Delphi Schools is now a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing education through effective primary, elementary, and secondary schools. It licenses the use of its name and the Delphi Program, which provides a standardized curriculum, common teaching and administrative methods, and a comprehensive curriculum training program that ensures consistency and effectiveness within the network.

The founding school of the Delphi Schools Network is the Delphian School, a thriving boarding and day school campus of 270 students from kindergarten through high school. Delphian School is located in Sheridan, Oregon, in the beautiful Willamette Valley. Situated on a 720-acre campus fifty miles southwest of Portland, near the city of McMinnville, thirty minutes west of Oregon’s capital city of Salem, and forty-five minutes from the scenic Oregon coast. It also serves as an educational facility for the Network as well as any educators interested in using the curriculum or in starting a school of their own.
