EUROPE TRIP 2018
Connecting Ancient History to Real Life
At Delphian we believe a student’s education is only meaningful when it is personal and connects with the student’s life and the real world. The Delphi Program™ helps students make that connection by encouraging them to explore and understand the connection between a subject of study and its application in real life.
While the Delphian bi-annual Europe Trip is hosted during spring break and is primarily for pleasure, traveling can be a valuable form of education. Traveling allows young people to connect the stories from their reading assignments from books such as the Odyssey, The Agony and the Ecstasy and Plato’s Republic to the actual places they’ve been reading about.
Delphian is always excited to provide our students with this opportunity. This year’s trip followed historical land and sea routes through Greece and included important stops at famous cities, landmarks and vistas including the Parthenon, King Agamemnon’s tomb, Pythagoras’s birthplace and of course Delphi.
