Proficiency-based teaching: Incorporating competence into the curriculum sets a whole new standard

Delphi Schools began as the dream of a small group of educators in the early 1970s to build a new kind of learning environment.

Students receive individualized study programs and follow carefully laid out checksheets. A student must demonstrate competence at each major step before continuing on to the next.

The nine Delphi schools are located in Clearwater, Florida, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Lake View, Campbell and the flagship center in Sheridan, Oregon.

Delphi students become self-directed learners by the age of 12 and thereafter proceed on supervised independent study and projects that involve the application of their learning.

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.

Delphi students actively apply the educational breakthroughs developed by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, such as the principles of the three barriers to study to every subject they tackle.
