Delbarton has a reputation for doing an exemplary job of helping students identify and successfully apply to colleges that meet their goals. One important aspect of our Senior Guidance program, led by Director of College Counseling Mike Rosenhaus '80, is this: We start early.

Read an excerpt below from an article written by Rosenhaus for the fall/winter issue of 'Delbarton Today' where he describes the college counseling process that he and his colleagues Sean Flanagan and Nick Linfante manage.

A majority of the Class of 2019 applied to college by November 1 in the early round, and we are pleased to report that seniors were accepted early by many top colleges and universities. Below is the list of Delbarton School Early Round Acceptances, and enjoy the extract from Rosenhaus's informative article that follows...

At Delbarton, the college counseling process begins in earnest during the winter of junior year. From winter through summer, we meet with the student and his parents to map out college visits, testing dates, senior year curriculum, extracurricular activities, and summer plans. During those meetings, we discuss college application details including essay topics, teacher recommendations, test sending policies and college major selection.

Over 95% of our senior class applies to college by November 1 in the early round. Most students submit applications to a number of colleges, covering a range of selectivity, with the goal of receiving an early Christmas gift: a college acceptance letter. Based on those results, students adjust the number of applications they submit in the regular round in early January. Most students ultimately apply to 8-12 schools. If a student has a successful early round, he might only submit 1-3 applications...

Although the college admissions process may seem overwhelming, Delbarton is there every step of the way to support and encourage our boys to a positive and fulfilling outcome. In the end, there is a great fit for every student, and our mission is to lead him to it.
