The Delphian School houses the offices of Heron Books

Heron Books, Inc. is an assumed business name of Delphi Schools Inc.,[1] under which the company publishes many paperback books for teachers, students, and home schoolers, as well as single-subject dictionaries for all grade levels. It is a trademark owned by Northwest Research, Inc.,[2] which is another assumed business name of Delphi Schools Inc.[1] Heron Books has its headquarters on the property of The Delphian School in unincorporated Yamhill County, Oregon, near Sheridan.[3][4][5]

Several of Heron Books published works for students are based on the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. The Heron Basics Program is listed on the website of the Delphi Academy as their basis of instruction. Delphi Schools is a private school system licensed by Applied Scholastics, another Scientology-related entity.[6][7]

Prior to the founding of the Delphi Heron Books, there existed a London publisher also called Heron Books. It published faux-leather classic books in the late 1960s and early 1970s.[8]
