Importantly, we at Delbarton are grateful for the opportunity to educate young men with great potential. We share this duty of education with each student’s parents, and we are aware of how important the decision is to send a boy to an independent school.
We also know that the financial commitment to an independent school can be beyond the reach of families with qualified students. Consequently, Delbarton has developed over the years the resources to aid many families to bridge the gap between their means and the School’s expenses. Delbarton seeks a broad diversity in its student body and is committed to making its educational opportunities available to exceptional young men regardless of race, color, creed, or financial status. In this spirit, we are very proud partners of A Better Chance - A national organization that, since 1963, has trained and placed into secondary schools qualified young students of color. We are also a host site for NJ Seeds' young scholars program where every summer academically qualified but economically disadvantaged students attend classes on the Delbarton campus.
The financial aid budget for the 2012-13 academic year is over $1,600,000. All awards take the form of outright grants and are issued according to the family’s proven financial need as determined by an Independent Financial Aid Service. Financial aid considerations are made separately from admission decisions and are kept strictly confidential.
The application for financial aid may be found by clicking the TADS button on the right side of this page. All financial aid applications should be completed by February 4th and your 2012 Federal Income Tax Form 1040 should be submitted to TADS by February 25th. Financial aid awards are mailed mid-March and replies to financial aid awards are due back by April 1st.
