For the last 16 years, BigByte has sent a select group of students to Oregon, U.S.A. to take part in a life-changing summer camp run by the Delphian School. With approximately 300 students attending each year from across the globe, the Delphian School's Summer at Delphi program is designed to challenge young people in and out of the classroom and help them discover that their potential for success is unlimited. The wonderful instructors seek to impart on students a love of learning and the ability to apply their knowledge to the real world. Part of what makes the experience so special is Delphi's approach to learning. Students work independently in a structured classroom while their educators supervise and assist – guiding, providing resources when requested, and motivating when necessary. Key to their success is a step-by-step study guide called a "checksheet" designed to ensure students possess a practical understanding of each subject and give students ownership of the learning process.
Living on campus throughout the four-to-six week program, your children will get to know students from many different nations, with their only commonality being their ability to speak English. This means that your children get to apply their English skills at all times, whether in the classroom, on the basketball court, or in the cafeteria. Furthermore, visiting students bring with them a diverse set of cultural values and ideas. Through the shared nature of their experience on campus, your children learn to understand, accept, and respect the cultural differences that differentiate people from different ethnic and national backgrounds. They become part of the diversity in a cultural melting pot that breaks down barriers and brings people together, rather than dividing them.
