- Delbarton School, an independent, Roman Catholic learning community conducted by the Benedictine monks of St. Mary's Abbey with their lay colleagues, welcomes young men in grades 7-12 from diverse backgrounds, and challenges them to pursue excellence, to develop leadership, and to build character by educating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
- Our programs in the arts, activities, athletics and ministry aim to deepen student involvement in the life of the school beyond the classroom.
- Delbarton seeks to enroll boys of good character who have demonstrated scholastic achievement and capacity for further growth.
- In turn, the faculty strives to support each boy's efforts toward intellectual development and to reinforce his commitment to help build a community of accountable persons.
- The faculty encourages each boy to become an independent seeker of information, not a passive recipient.
- Each boy must assume responsibility for gaining both knowledge and judgment.
