Please know that 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 were once proud partners of A Better Chance - a national organization that, since 1963, has trained and placed into secondary schools qualified young students of color. And since 2003, we have been 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 2015-16 academic year is over $2.3 million. All awards take the form of outright grants and are issued according to the family’s proven financial need as determined by TADS, a private financial aid service. Independently of admission considerations, financial aid decisions are made the Financial Aid Committee and kept strictly confidential.
All financial aid applications should be completed by February 1st and your 2015 Federal Income Tax Form 1040 should be submitted to TADS by February 22nd. Financial aid awards are mailed mid-March and replies to financial aid awards are due back by April 1st.
