Adelphians Show Heroic Qualities on Superhero Day!
BAY RIDGE – Bam! Thwack! Ka-Pow! Comic books came to life at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn on Thursday, September 29th, 2022 as the entire school came together to show school spirit on Superhero Day! Students, faculty and staff came to Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn dressed as their favorite superheroes for the first of Adelphi’s monthly Spirit Day events.
Adelphians of all ages dressed as The Avengers, Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and other popular comic book characters. Typical comic book sayings decorated the halls of each floor and students and staff enjoyed posing for photos striking their best superhero poses in front of them. Lower Schoolers also learned about what it takes to be a hero, from being kind and helping others to always doing their best!
Head of School Ms. Iphigenia Romanos said, “Superhero Day serves as a great way to kick off Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn’s monthly Spirit Day program. It allows students and staff to tap into their own heroic qualities — from being polite and respectful to assisting others in need at all times — which they continue to cultivate throughout the rest of the school year.”
As the oldest private, independent, continuing, coeducational, college-preparatory day school in the borough and one of the oldest in the nation, Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn, “the little school of big dreams” has been “effectively preparing young people for college, career, and life, one day at a time” for over 150 years. Founded in 1863 and located in the historic Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, Adelphi enrolls students from three years of age through twelfth grade. A strong emphasis is placed on small class size, individualized attention, self-expression, critical thinking and challenging hands-on learning through Adelphi’s founding philosophy and dedication to the education of the “total child.” Adelphi students excel within a small, intimate, safe, caring, nurturing, and secure environment through Adelphi’s core values and founding principles of pride, tradition, spirit, and excellence. The student-teacher ratio is 8 to 1 and Adelphi is a New York State Regents Exempt Program with a 100% college application, acceptance and attendance rate. A founding member of the Coalition of Essential Schools, Adelphi receives its charter from the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and has been a member of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools since 1928.
