Delbarton seeks to enroll boys of good character who have demonstrated scholastic achievement and capacity for further growth. In turn, the faculty strives to support each boy's efforts toward intellectual development and to reinforce his commitment to help build a community of accountable persons. The faculty encourages each boy to become an independent seeker of information, not a passive recipient. Each boy must assume responsibility for gaining both knowledge and judgment, which will strengthen his faith, his membership in the life of the school, and his contribution to broader society. In short, while the School offers much, it also seeks boys who are willing to give much.
