Delta Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young females (ages 11-14) from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and crippled futures. Delta Academy provides an opportunity for Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae members to enhance the education of students at West Oakland Middle School. Delta Academy meets every second Saturday in the West Oakland Middle School library from 10am-12pm. The young women participate in a variety of activities on topics including: health and fitness, sexual health, body image, and self-esteem. Participants will also have the opportunity to go on field trips for college exposure or other special outings to cultural events, museums, plays, or concerts.
