Delphi Academy provided a solid foundation for both our daughters to excel in High School. My eldest daughter will graduate Cum Laude this spring and was offered admissions to several top universities. We feel this success is a direct result of our investment in a Delphi Academy education and the study technology principles they use.

Delphi Academy has by far the best education ever. Both of my daughters attend there and I can not rave enough about the progress that they have both have made. The individualized program Delphi offers allows my daughters to go at their own speed and master each and every lesson they are taught. The best part is that they learn to apply what they learn in school to everyday life. My daughters look forward to going to school everyday. I could not have made a better choice. The sense of community in the school is tremendous. We are all working towards the same goal which is to see our children excel.

I am thrilled with my son's education at Delphi Academy. He is 10 years old and already halfway through fifth grade. The school allows students to move at their own pace and helps them take ownership and responsibility for their education. Their focus is on application, leadership skills, ethics and problem solving skills. I could not imagine my son in any other program.

My son has attended Delphi Academy for 5 years now and has flourished in the Delphi environment. A practical curriculum allows children the opportunity to be directly invested in their learning and allows them to see immediate rewards for their hard work. The educators at Delphi know exactly what tools to use in order to keep the children engaged and encouraged - we love them all! The reading program is simply amazing - my son's vocabulary is larger than many adults I know and he is only 10. He has grown more inquisitive and intrigued with each lesson mastered. It has been wonderful watching him thrive both academically, socially and physically. Delphi was definitely the best choice for our son.

This school is a great, well rounded education. From Reading, Math skills, art, and just overall caring and nurturing environment. I highly recommend this school to everyone. The teachers and administrators care very much and we have been happy with our boys education here. It has prepared them well with life skills for attending high school and beyond.

All three of my children have through this program. My oldest is now in college. She was given tools to stand out and excell in the very competative college environment. Even among the best of the best students at a top school she stands out as a leader and great communicator that teachers and employers love to see. I give Delphi tremendous credit for this as they teach the students not only book knowledge but the ability to use that knowledge to get ahead in life, and quickly!!!! They teach them that productivity is rewarded and not producing good work is not rewarded ( just like in life!!) and good productivity requires effort. I have never seen a similar program out there and I tell all my friends about this program!

mazing Educators, incredible dedication to learning process. My son has never been excited about school, so for him to talk about his classes, subjects learned and achievements is quite astonishing. His vocabulary and scholastic skills grow by leaps and bounds. I am pleasantly shocked by his sudden understanding in how knowledge affects every day life and importance of building strong foundation in learning. Thank you to all professionals of Delphi for making an adventure out of school year and getting kids ready for life.

I appreciate that Delphi takes a holistic approach to educating children. They see the importance of developing a child's character, body and mind. There is a commitment to seeing each child achieve his or her best. I believe my children will be better contributing members of our global community because of the time they have spent at Delphi.

My family loves this school because Delphi genuinely loves to teach children from all nations and see our children thrive and become awesome citizens of their community. The curriculm is fabulous. I am a huge fan of the reading program it is incredible. Come and see a 3-4 year old read and understand what they are reading. Our 5 year olds students are as the young people say 'off the chart' when it comes to reading. Don't miss the opportunity to let your child thrive in a nurturing and caring environment.

I attended Delphi Academy in Milton from pre-school through eight grade, and I loved every minute of it. From the fun field trips and great teachers to the safe environment and individual learning style, I couldn't have asked for a better place to flourish as a child. I go back to visit often and recommend it to everyone who has children. It's like my 2nd home, and I owe much of my current success to their wonderful program and talented faculty. This year I graduated from Emerson College in Boston and have the career I've always dreamed of. Thank you Delphi for your years of support!

It is where I first ogt started. I owe my entire foundation to Delphi. After I left, and went to a public school, I felt ahead of most of the students and very accomplished.

Because the staff are just great and they really help children LEARN and Grow!


Posted September 18, 2009

The education!!! I went to Delphi for 11 years and it set me up to exceed the levels of education of many public school students in their senior years of high school, by the time I was 13! They always provided amazing field trips and unique experiences for students, encouraged high amounts of sports and activities to keep our bodies healthy, and really promoted the importance of honesty, integrity and ethics at a young age. I will always recommend this school!!!

I love Delphi Academy because of the loving friendly staff, the beautiful building and grounds, the amazing care they take for each student, individually (I should know, I was a student myself) and, lastly, because it feels like a 2nd home to me.


Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
