Open to U.S. and international students around the world, Delphian School is a premiere, independent, non-religious, co-educational day and boarding school in Sheridan, Oregon (in the Pacific North-West region of the United States). Located 60 miles south of Portland OR, and 4 hours from Seattle WA, we offer a rigorous academic independent-study program with a strong emphasis on practical learning for primary through high school students. Delphian boasts a diverse, international student body representing over 20 countries worldwide.
College Prep Boarding Programs for U.S. and International Students:
Boarding students are accepted from the age of 10 through 18, and day students from the age of 5 through 18.
Students also focus on ethics and integrity, leadership, life skills, computer technology, and physical education. And they choose from an expansive selection of elective courses. We also offer English as a Second Language (ESL) programs & summer programs.
Delphian School is both a boarding and a day school; some students board during the week and go home on the weekends (five-day boarders).
Although we have many day students, our boarding students form the core of the Delphian community, gaining independence as they learn cooperation; putting knowledge gained in the classroom to immediate use; and increasing their responsibility for themselves and others.
Lower School Progam:
Delphian's Lower School includes Forms 1 and 2 (Kindergarten - 3rd Grade). Program highlights include:
- Caring faculty with lots of personal, one-on-one attention for every child
- Small classes
- After school program
- Hands-on learning, seminars and early reading program
- Bimonthly field trips
- Building strong foundations in Reading, Math and Science
Elementary School Curriculum:
Delphian's Elementary School curriculum focuses on the reading, writing and mathematics basics, while immersing students in the arts, physical and social sciences, foreign language and plenty of practical application to help students relate what they're learning to the real world.
Middle School Curriculum:
The Middle School years form the critical transition period from students competent in the basics of reading, writing and mathematics to students launched into more serious academic study.
Upper School Curriculum:
In addition to challenging academic studies in literature, mathematics, writing, science, history and government, Upper School students gain practical understanding and experience in subjects of leadership, integrity and logic, as well as management and organizational skills.
Our students work one-on-one with a curriculum specialist to develop their own, individual program of study within the core curriculum based on his interests, strengths and weaknesses, as developed in interviews and through diagnostic testing.
As they progress through the Upper School, students begin to focus on their particular areas of interest by selecting an area of specialization such as science and technology, the humanities, business, or fine arts. This is the culmination of the whole program — professional preparation for whatever the next step of the student is to be.
ESL (English As a Second Language) Program:
Delphian School offers a strong English-as-a-Second-Language program year-round to international students from the ages of eight through eighteen. Our goal is to help ESL students become competitive with American students in their pursuit of an American high school and college or university education.
We do this by providing a well-rounded education in basic English reading, writing, culture and conversation.
