The Delphian School offers a strong English-as-a-Second-Language program year-round to 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. Students finishing The Delphian School ESL Program would then be placed in the same class as native English-speaking students. The ESL students’ English at this point would not be perfect, but the students would be competitive in that class with native English speakers.
Intermediate level ESL students who qualify can enroll at any time during the regular school year program or during the summer program (based on school availability). Students below intermediate level must first enroll in the school’s Summer Program, as beginning ESL is not offered during the regular school year.
Please contact our Admissions Office for detailed information on qualifications for Intermediate ESL. Most beginning ESL students who attend the six-week summer program can qualify for Intermediate ESL by the beginning of the fall term.
