Delbarton School enjoys a storied legacy and a college-like campus of 187 acres located in historic Morristown. But there’s nothing old about Delbarton’s facilities and offerings. The school boasts a fully-renovated science pavilion with STEM Makerspaces, a new library, student commons and guidance center, and a state-of-the-art Athletic Field House and Strength and Conditioning Center. Delbarton provides its 650 boys, grades 7-12, a virtual playground of educational opportunities.


Having recently completed a $70 million capital campaign, Delbarton’s enhancements include an updated academic schedule, increased elective offerings and expansive bus routes for its students who come from three states and 120 towns. More than a third of its students self-identify as non-White.

“I think the ‘Delbarton Difference’ is our ability to blend exceptional learning opportunities with genuinely fun experiences—students, families, faculty and alumni love to be here. And the glue of this magic is the culture of belonging,” says Dean of Admissions Dr. David Donovan. A recent study showed satisfaction rates of Delbarton families and alumni ranking higher than brands like Apple or Nike.

Benedictine monks founded Delbarton School in 1939. Today, Delbarton offers 26 Advanced Placement courses, championship teams in 16 varsity sports, and a Mission and Ministry Program with 100 percent voluntary student participation. “Shaping young men into leaders for others is our mission, and thankfully families feel we deliver on that,” Dr. Donovan says. In fact, Delbarton has one of the strongest alumni networks in the country, which loyally supports the lives and careers of its graduates worldwide.


The school is known for its many signature offerings, including a Junior Externship Program, a product and design Incubator Course, a Bloomberg Business Center and a robust travel program supporting service and learning trips across the globe.

Perhaps the least appreciated but most significant feature of Delbarton is its generous financial aid program: the school distributes $3.75 million in need-based grants annually. “A Delbarton education is transformative—we ‘Build Better Boys,’” he says. “Making that kind of experience available to qualified students regardless of background is critical for us.”
