Come to an updated Science Pavilion, new STEM maker space, a 9,400-square-foot library and guidance center, an updated Student Center and ongoing construction of an athletic field house with modern amenities to be completed next spring, Delbarton School’s 650 boys in grades 7-12 enjoy a playground of educational and extra-curricular opportunities on its 187-acre Morristown campus. 


Having just completed a $70 million capital campaign, Delbarton’s recent enhancements include an updated student schedule, more elective offerings and revised bus routes for its students who come from three states and 120 towns. 

“We’re really grateful for our learning environment—our teachers are excellent and our facilities superb,” says Dean of Admission Dr. David Donovan. “Boys actually find it a fun place to be. But Delbarton’s main draw is definitely the culture of brotherhood.” 

The Benedictine monks of St. Mary’s Abbey opened Delbarton’s college-like campus in 1939. 

A recent survey showed satisfaction rates of Delbarton families and alumni ranking higher than brands like Apple or Nike, probably due in part to a program that features 26 Advanced Placement courses, championship teams in 16 varsity sports and a voluntary Mission and Ministry program with 100 percent student participation. 

“Shaping boys into ethical, responsible and capable leaders is our mission, and thankfully families feel we deliver on that,” Dr. Donovan says. 


The school’s curriculum is enhanced by innovative offerings like the Delbarton product Incubator course and a business center with dedicated Bloomberg terminals, as well as a 36,000 square-foot arts center and a robust travel program offering service and learning trips across the globe. 

Delbarton boasts one of the strongest alumni networks in the country to support its graduates worldwide. Yet another unique feature of Delbarton is its financial aid outreach; the school distributes $3.5 million in need-based grants annually. 

“What defines Delbarton is our deep community and confidence in preparing students for Delbarton in the 21st century world,” he says. “A Delbarton education is a transformative, lifelong experience.”
