Delano INSPIRES the gifted child

we value being unordinary


We are not interested in following trends and passively adopting traditional educational practices.


Our academy values best practices.


The Delano Academy is founded on the principles of individualized gifted education.


We value the potential in every student.


We provide the milieu that fosters curiosity and exploration.


Our faculty act as facilitators where students develop the imagineering capability to live and think about education beyond the microcosm of our academy and to explore their world.


Our student archetype is confident, resilient, a collaborator, and has strong character. The Delano student is curious, passionate, and optimistic about their learning and serious about student stewardship.


Our students are leaders, visionaries and makers. 


Our students are passionate and ingenious innovators as they actively create knowledge beyond traditional learning paradigms.


Our entire environment caters to harnessing the potential within each student. We carefully consider all aspects of environment.


We provide Discipline, Excellence, Leadership, Authenticity, Nurturing, & an Organic learning experience. 

Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.

-Albert einstein


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.
