We believe

that every student has

limitless learning potential

We are Vaughan's choice as an IB candidate University Preparatory Gifted Private School.

We are DIFFERENT  than any other boutique private school for Gifted Students.

We believe strongly in a balance between Academics, Arts, Athletics and Character Development.

 

We are cutting edge, progressive in education, but conservative in our values.

We teach strategies to improve skills. Learning is life-long. We help high-achieving students 'Learn to Learn.'

 

We do not limit ourselves by adhering to one specific style such as Montessori or Reggio Emilia. Gifted education is beyond one style or method of teaching. It is dynamic and whole, continually changing and improving.

 

We support life-long learning beyond university into real LIFE.

Delano Academy is founded on the principles of individualized education for Gifted Students.

We equip our bright & high-achieving students with 21st Century Skills for a changing world.

ACADEMY NAME ORIGIN

The origin of the school name Delano has English, Gaelic, Celtic, Jewish, French and Italian origin. Its' meaning is diverse but has been associated with the Alder Tree Grove. "The Alder Tree Grove reminds us of the need to blend strength and courage with generosity of spirit and compassion. There is a time to challenge things and a time to hold our peace.  The alder teaches us this discrimination and the need to see beneath the surface of things."

-The Wisdom of Trees, Jane Gifford.
