Welcome to Delbarton!
We, the students, faculty and staff of Delbarton School, are excited to welcome you to our school community. Since 1939, the young men of Delbarton have been transformed spiritually, intellectually, physically and emotionally by Delbarton's Benedictine Catholic education. Your story is now a part of our many stories, and we can't wait to learn how you will enrich life at Delbarton!
You've been selected from a highly competitive applicant pool because you showed us that you have something special to make Delbarton better, even as Delbarton equips you to become a man of faith, intellect, and character. Be sure to join us at our Accepted Students Day program on Monday, January 28, to meet your classmates and begin your Delbarton Experience by seeing how "brotherhood" comes alive when our students are together!
Yours in Christ and St. Benedict,
Fr. Michael Tidd, O.S.B.
Ms. Deirdre McAuliffe, RN

The fine and performing arts flourish at Delbarton outside the curriculum as well. The art department sponsors clubs in architecture and studio, faculty and student exhibits, and trips to galleries and museums.
Performing groups include the Brass Ensemble, the Schola Cantorum (singing group), the Jazz Ensemble, the Wind Ensemble, and the Abbey Orchestra, whose membership is drawn not only from boys in the School but also from musicians in the surrounding community. Recitals and performances are held throughout the year.
Delbarton’s Abbey Players stage four theatrical productions a year, involving boys in a wide variety of dramatic and musical experiences. Boys study the craft of acting by researching different facets of theater, including mime, dialogue, and skits.

Delbarton, home of the Green Wave, offers the perfect collaboration of athletes and fans. We field 17 varsity sports and there is no better place to be than on the field or in the pit at a big game. Our boys train hard, compete even harder, and play with honor for each other and their opponents.

campus ministry & service
The Campus Ministry program acts as the “heartbeat” of Delbarton School, providing opportunities for students to seek and encounter God and His love for them, as well as to respond to that love through lives of faith and service.
Our community service program is an expression of the Benedictine charism of hospitality that welcomes everyone as Jesus Christ (The Rule of St. Benedict, 53:1, Matt. 25:40) and seeks to inspire in our students a true humanism which “acknowledges that man is made in the image of God and wants to help him live in a way consonant with that dignity” (Pope Benedict XVI, God is Love, n. 30). With a project for every heart and every schedule, community service at Delbarton affords each student the opportunity to give himself with passion and commitment to those in need, and to develop into a “servant leader.”
