Practical Activities


There are practical requirements for Middle School students throughout their academic studies, providing them with important real-life experience in conducting experiments, making useful products, participating in activities that further enhance their understanding of the subjects taught or in learning a new skill. Practical consists of both projects and skill development.

Out in the Field

Getting out to observe or interact with the world outside Delphi is a big part of the program. In the classrooms, students are encouraged to connect what they are studying with the real world. Field trips help them to make that connection even more real. Middle School students generally take one to two field trips every month. Typical trips might include the Museum of Science, Massachusetts State House, a historic walk along the Freedom Trail or visiting a rock climbing facility.


As part of the learning process, Middle School students will participate in a variety of practical projects. These may include running a simple business, participating in a community service project, crossing plants to get a hybrid, programming a computer, writing a short play or building a dome. Under some circumstances, Middle School students can arrange for on- and/or off-campus apprenticeships in areas of interest.
