Delphi Academy My son attended Delphi Academy between the ages of 3-6 years old. Everything about Delphi's Program from the close individualized attention their teachers devote to the student learning, the classroom size, the active and hands on participatory learning techniques and the loving and nurturing environment have helped provide my son with a strong academic and social foundation and love for learning that he can bring with him to succeed in any academic setting! I highly recommend Delphi to any parent that wants to make a worthwhile investment in their child's academic foundation! There is no other program like Delphi Academy!

My two children attending Delphi have a passion for reading and learning and you can't put a price on that. The academics are challenging and their approach ensures that students won't advance to the next lesson without first demonstrating proficiency in what they've learned. So you can trust that your child is truly learning. The teachers and administrators care about what they do and are always available to parents. I have visited numerous other schools and no other approach to learning compares to Delphi.

One of the best investments that you can make as a parent is investing in your kids education. I looked at different private schools in and around the Milton area but finally decided on Delphi. It was their curriculum that set them apart from the rest of the pack. I was very impressed with Delphi's approach to learning, and their focus on teaching kids at their own individual pace. They put a lot of emphasis on reading and writing. It was amazing to see my 3 year old reading and writing so quickly. They also focus on making sure the students understand the meaning of the words that they are reading. In addition to reading and writing, Delphi Academy has done a great job teaching my kids math. Delphi Academy has an amazing teaching process and the results have exceeded my expectations. They take time teaching kids based on their level. Delphi doesn't rush kids or teach to take a test, as is seen in public schools. At Delphi they know that each kid is different and special and they give students the confidence in themselves to get better every day. Also, they do NOT have a religious agenda. I am Catholic, and as a parent I prefer to teach my kids our religious values.

I am a Delphi parent and I have to say that I truly believe I made the best choice in academic ventures my children could embark on. Delphi's academic philosophies are proven effective and my son is gaining an educational foundation that is that of the strongest pedigree I've come to see in an elementary system. My youngest son is set to begin Delphi this September and I await anxiously and excited to see the growth and achievement I know he too will demonstrate. As a foundation, Delphi not only promotes high academic achievement within the student body, the community in which it serves, also promotes a foundation and strive for solid logic, critical thinking, strategy, and excellent desicion making skills from the start. A+ rating- Extremely proud parent

Delphi Academy has infused intrigue and fun into its learning program. The students actually enjoy learning,they seem to want to learn everything.It is like a sponge soaking up as much as possible. Delphi Academy, it's staff and their program are amazing. To watch our future leaders excel is just incredible.Delphi Academy works!!

Delphi Academy is a great school! We are very happy with our daughters education. Her academic education is great but more than that she learned to be a confident, independent and always challenges herself. The school prepared her to take on secondary school and beyond. We are very pleased with our choice and would recommend this school to anyone seeking a well rounded education.

Delphi is a school where the student is given a chance to engage with the process of learning. Unlike other schools, at Delphi the students take a big responsibility in knowing, understanding and using what they learn. Independence is at the forefront of each day, and students move at their at the pace which their ability provides. The classroom sizes are small to ensure that each student gets attention, care and consideration. What other school can you go to where you student, after 8 hours, wants to stay a bit longer? Delphi provides not only a great education, but a love for learning that will stay with them for life.

Parent- My husband and I made the decision to enroll our daughter 5 years ago and we couldn't be happier. Delphi Academy has not only given her a strong academic foundation but also has become a place where she has made friends she'll know forever and teachers who care about her as an individual. She has the ability to learn at her own pace through Delphi's unique individualized programs. I encourage all parents to take a minute to look into what Delphi can offer your child. You won't regret it.

Delphi Academy of Boston was like a second home to me for the entirety of time I was there. I attended this school from pre-school through middle school. It was absolutely the best place to grow up in. The staff of Delphi Academy are very caring for their students and have learned to ensure that the student is really understanding the subjects he is learning. The curriculum is set up in a way that the student is constantly interested in their subjects while also applying it to real life. It challenges the student to be a leader and step out of his comfort zone, while also allowing the student to thrive in a comfortable environment where he learns about ethics and integrity. I will always cherish my memories at Delphi Academy and absolutely recommend any prospective parents to choose this school. It will be one of the best choices you can make for your child.

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.

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.
