Delphi Academy of Los Angeles:
Delphi Academy of Los Angeles is an independent, coeducational, non-sectarian day school offering a preschool through high school program on one campus. Our campus is located in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest in the equestrian community of Lake View Terrace in the San Fernando Valley region. Academics focus on providing students with a solid grounding in the basics, a rich and challenging hands-on curriculum, and the ability to study purposefully and independently. Delphi Academy of Los Angeles admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

• Lower School:
Lower School includes Beginner 1 through Form 2, roughly equivalent to kindergarten through third grade.
Instead of forcing a child into the “one-size-fits all” of traditional school programs, our unique program is designed to suit each individual student.
This means never having to slow down for his or her peers, or being rushed through a subject without fully understanding it - everyone learns at their own pace.
Getting started with a positive attitude about the whole learning experience is vital. We find that our amazing program results in students who love to study, love attending school, and are free to advance at a much quicker pace than in traditional school programs.
Our comprehensive Lower School curriculum teaches basic skills, with the greatest emphasis being placed on writing, reading, and mathematics, surrounded by a broad experiential program.
Lower School students also study science, geography, history, art, music, poetry, and drama - all designed with an integrated approach. In addition, they are taught communication skills from a young age, and given tools to work their problems out kindly in order to maintain a healthy and happy school experience.
The Lower School athletic program offers two physical education classes a day.
• Elementary School
Forms 3 and 4, covering the equivalent of fourth through sixth grades
After meeting with the student, and determining their learning goals and interests, we develop a personal program for them. On completion of the Elementary School program, he or she will be fully prepared for success in Middle School and beyond.
Our elementary school program comprises a well-rounded curriculum with great focus placed on understanding the material and ability to fully apply what is learned. Students only move on to more difficult subject matter when they have fully mastered the earlier step.
Academics focus on the basics - reading, writing, mathematics and study skills. There is also a special emphasis on life skills and practical application.
- Science & Technology
- Geography & History
- Life Skills, Ethics & Integrity
- Foreign Language (generally Spanish)
- Elementary Arts (art, music, dance and drama)
- Field Trips
- Elementary Athletics
• Middle School
Forms 5 & 6, covering the equivalent of seventh & eighth grades
During these years, students undergo the critical transition period from competency in the basics of writing, reading, and mathematics to undertaking more serious academic study.
Our objective is to maintain and raise the standards of the basic tools they learned earlier, helping them to become more independent and focused as students and get an increased conceptual understanding of how academic subjects integrate and relate to real life.
- Mathematics & Technology
- Sciences (covering Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, Microscopes and Microbes and Electricity)
- Geography, History, Government and Current Events
- Foreign Language (usually Spanish or French)
- Life Skills, Ethics & Integrity
- Middle School Arts (art, music and drama become electives)
- Field Trips
- Middle School Athletics
• High School:
Freshman through Senior Levels
In High School, every student is provided with a tailor-made program designed to set them up to pursue their goals in life. The study skills they have learned at Delphi are perfected and honed to the point there they can literally learn any subject, leading to success in further education or any career path they choose to follow.
As well as rounding out their academic studies in mathematics, literature, science, writing, history and government, High School students gain practical experience and understanding in the subjects of leadership, integrity and logic, as well as organizational skills and management.
By taking on tasks of increased responsibility, which require higher and higher levels of competence, they also become a vital element in the functioning of the school.
By their junior year, students select one of four major areas to study more intensively - Business, Fine Arts, Humanities, or Science & Technology. In addition to the standard program of required core courses, they focus on academic study and practical experience related to that specific area.
- Mathematics & Technology (Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Math, Technology)
- Writing & Public Speaking
- History, Government & Current Events
- Applied Philosophy & Logic (The Logic Series, Education, Leadership, Life Skills, Ethics & Integrity, Family Education and Health)
- Practical Application (Projects, Apprenticeships)
- High School Arts (Art, Music & Theater Electives)
- High School Sports
Graduates of Form 5 (Middle School) move directly into the High School Freshman Level. If you are a student newly entering Delphi in the High School, you will begin with the Freshman Entry Level. This serves to orient you to the study methods taught at Delphi, while filling in any “holes” from previous academic programs.
