Every Spring Break, students at the Delphian School have the opportunity to work on projects which will help forward their goals in life. These projects range from helping in a film project, to going on a school trip to Washington DC, to helping battered teens at a local shelter.
Our students learn valuable skills from these projects. They learn about possible fields of work, they learn what just one person can do to help others, they learn how to apply what they have learned in the classroom in a “real world” setting, and more.
For example, one of our students is going to work at a battered women’s shelter in a nearby city over Spring Break. She says:
“For my Honor and Elective project I’m going to tutor children…and work with teens and adults on educating them about the Way to Happiness at a home for people who live or lived under domestic abuse…. I’m going to call them to see if there is anything else they would like and try to serve them in that way.” – H.K.
Another of our students has secured an internship on a film project in Los Angeles over Spring Break. This means they will have the opportunity to work in an industry in which they are interested while they are still working to complete High School.
Projects like these and many others are important to our students as they give our students the opportunity to use Spring Break to forward their career outside of school. This gives them the valuable chance to discover what they enjoy doing now – before they have graduated and are being pressured to decide on a major or career path.
At Delphian School, our students have the opportunity to be involved in real-world application of the skills they learn in the classroom – and learn new skills along the way. Learn more about our approach to practical application of learned skills by visiting our website at www.Delphian.org.
