“The Delphi Program is a private school model with its flagship Delphian School in Sheridan, Oregon, and a network of six other schools in major urban centers around the United States.”
“The Delphi Program is a uniquely integrated approach to learning for K–12 schools, with a foundation of eight basic principles comprising its fundamental philosophy. Since its inception in 1975, it has been designed with an emphasis on application in the world beyond the classroom, the aim of its curriculum being to help students of any age “take on life.”
Within a close-knit community and lively campus environment, Delphian students are given highly personal attention from instructors, an individual academic program and a focus on demonstrated competence rather than memorization of facts or time spent in class. Students learn to not only understand what they study, but also to become competent in the use of logic and reason.”
Applied Scholastics OnlineAcademy is a non-profit organization with the purpose of improving and revitalizing society in the field of education. This far-reaching goal begins with the individual student and spreads from there.
Allow nothing to tarnish your child’s self-confidence, your child’s dreams and imagination. For these are necessary traits for making a better world.
When regular schooling is not working for a child, we encourage parents to take their child’s education in their own hands. We offer home school help, affordable tuition, testing and placement and customized programming for pre-school through high school.
Students on our high school program may work with parents on a home school basis or work directly with one of our educators online. Students graduate knowing how to learn, how to research and how to evaluate data so they can master anything they wish. Our Applied Scholastics Online diploma is recognized by most universities around the world.
“The K¹² curriculum and our flexible schooling programs have been highly praised by educators and parents alike for their ability to support individually-paced learning and help get students on track. A key element of our mission is to serve these children so that they can succeed and thrive.
For students who need more time to grasp concepts, or who may need an environment with fewer distractions, the K¹² online learning programs can be highly effective. We combine dynamic curriculum, teaching and support, a strong community, and special services into a powerful, effective schooling experience. Regular assessments are built into the courses to help teachers pinpoint exactly where problem areas are occurring and allow them to move swiftly to support the student in coming up to grade level. The K¹² K-8 Program and High School Programare delivered through our online public school partners and K¹²’s online private school , the K¹² International.”
“Homeschooling is the most exciting movement in education today! It’s not exactly new; up until 1850 most children in America were educated at home. But the past 25 years have seen a revival in homeschooling, and now between two and three million children in the United States are learning at home. Homeschool.com was created to empower parents to create the ideal school for their child at home! Homeschool.com’s founding principle is to consistently provide resources, information, and support to all homeschooling families.”
