Delbarton attracts students of diverse talents, interests and experiences.  This combination is powerful when joined to a setting of belonging.  The job of Delbarton Admissions is to build a dynamic community where young men are empowered to take risks, grow, lead and ultimately achieve inside and beyond the classroom walls.  This is the Delbarton Experience.

Admission is based on a candidate's overall qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, or financial status.  Candidates are considered based on their transcript, teacher recommendations, test results, personal interview and formal application.  Delbarton does not admit postgraduate students or students who are entering 12th grade.

The admission season runs from September to January of a given academic year.  Applicants typically apply in the fall prior to their year of enrollment.  Students usually apply to Delbarton for acceptance into the seventh or ninth grades.  A few openings may be available every year in grades eight, ten and eleven. 

A student’s candidacy for admission will be considered only after he completes, in any given order, the following three steps:

  1. Online application (must be submitted by November 28)
  2. School Interview (offered on campus on Saturday mornings from early September through December)
  3. Entrance Exam (on campus on October 29 and December 3)
