OUR VISION An UNordinary school 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.
