As a ‘school for the Lord's service’ (St. Benedict's Rule, Prologue, v. 45) we believe that God invites us into a deeper relationship with Him, and we foster the spiritual development of our students by helping them to grow in faith and love. At Delbarton, we go all in and fully commit to an annual retreat for each student. 

For over 35 years, the Delbarton Retreat program has exemplified our core mission, and formed Delbarton students in the values of the School. As such, retreats are a mandatory part of our curriculum. Experience shows that these experiences enhance brotherhood and community, encourage faith development, and foster growth in character, Benedictine values, and the regular practice of the Faith.  

All grade 9 through 12 students register for retreats at Orientation in August (Middle Schoolers attend their retreat as an entire division in October). The Freshman and Junior (KAIROS) retreats are led by junior and senior stduent leaders. Students are required to attend the full retreat and step away from the daily routine of classwork, homework, and extracurricular activities.  The cumulative structure of student leader witness talks and activities is essential to accomplish our goals for each transformative retreat experience.
