How do we say Delbarton? Together!
Challenge your brain. Push your body. Draw, act, write. Be bold, be inspired. Be exactly who you are only better. Don’t do just one thing. Do it all. And be among friends, for these are your brothers. Treasure your time here because this is not just another pretty place. This is an experience...The Delbarton Experience.
Delbarton’s majestic campus is set on rolling hills in the heart of western New Jersey was named for the vacation estate of Luther Kountze. The 200 acre property is located in Morris Township, three miles west of the historic Morristown Green and thirty miles west of New York City. The School’s four academic buildings line the perimeter of our formal garden and include a 24,000 square foot science pavilion, 36,000 square foot Fine Arts Center, 4 science labs and 6 computer labs.
The Delbarton student body comes from over 8 counties and 60 towns, representing a variety of talents and backgrounds. Students are encouraged to grow through challenge, to take risks by broadening their capacities of body, mind, 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.
The Delbarton School motto Succisa Virescit -- "sue chee sa Vir esh it"-- is translated "Cut down, it grows up strong again" and was chosen to convey the value and importance of perseverance. Succisa Virescit is also the ancient motto to Montecassino, cele-brated monastery where St. Benedict wrote his Rule.
