At Delbarton, creativity, truth and beauty find expression in a thriving arts program.

Advance to an intensive AP Art sequence, take music lessons or join the Abbey Players -- our community nurtures and celebrates creativity as an essential aspect of growth in all ways.

Get ready to explore the arts in a modern Fine Arts Center that includes art and music studios, practice spaces, and a 660-seat theater.

Delbarton’s Art program stages faculty and student exhibits, organizes educational visits to galleries and museums, and invites recognized artists to provide master classes.

Student organizations include the Artists Collective, Digital Media Club and Photography Club.

Something Rotten

Delbarton Abbey Players, a troupe of student actors and visiting thespians from area schools, presents a standing-room-only musical each February. Check out an excerpt from our 2021 production of Something Rotten!


Ensembles range from the Schola Cantorum choral group to a full orchestra. Vocal and instrumental instruction is available from full- and part-time instructors.


Delbarton’s Abbey Players stage three theatrical productions a year. Auditions are open to all Delbarton students, as well as to female musicians and thespians from area schools
