Driving Directions to The Delphian School From McMinnville
Leave McMinnville by taking 99 toward Sheridan/the coast (heading west). After you pass the Dairy Queen on your left, take the next right into Sheridan (Business 18).

Continue through Sheridan on Business 18 for about 3 miles (it becomes Main Street and then turns back into 18 again) to Rock Creek Road. This is a T-intersection; you can only turn right. There are two Delphian School highway signs at this intersection.

Turn right at Rock Creek Road and continue about 1 mile until you come to the Delphian School gate, and turn left into the school gate entrance. Drive up the long entry road, past the tennis courts, track and gym, and at the fork, go left at the visitor sign. This takes you to the front entrance of the main building. Continue around the loop (stay left) and then park on the lower loop and come to Larson Hall (the building closest to the valley). (Additional parking is available in front of the main building on the upper loop.)

The meeting will be in Larson Hall's Main Conference Room.
