Delbarton Exam Private Tutoring

Information about the Delbarton Exam

Delbarton is known for providing a top education, great athletic programs, and an exemplary foundation for men of integrity.

But, before attending, you’ll need to pass their entrance exam.


What does Delbarton say about their entrance exam?

“Delbarton schedules its own entrance examinations three times a year in October, November, and December. Applicants register for an examination by selecting a date in the Online Application Part I. The exam covers three areas: the student’s native ability, subject knowledge, and writing fluency. These are measured, respectively, through an aptitude test, achievement test, and a writing sample.” (Delbarton website)

We liken the Delbarton entrance exam to a combination of the traditional private Catholic school entrance exams and an additional test for gifted students, and our curriculum is designed to optimally prepare our students for this exam. 

Please note: Summit Prep is an independent tutoring company that is not affiliated with, endorsed by or otherwise related to Delbarton.

After Acceptance to High School

Once you start high school (or before), we are here to support you if you need help in any academic subjects. And, when you need it, we specialize in SAT and ACT prep and provide one-on-one, customized tutoring to over 1,000 students every year for these college entrance exams.

Timeline for SAT/ACT Testing and College Admissions

Fall of sophomore year:

Students take the PSAT in October and get results back in early December. These results do not count toward National Merit status, and we recommend that students do not prep for it (here’s more info one why we make that recommendation). But, the results do give us an early indication of where a student’s standardized test score is at, which can inform if we need to start SAT/ACT prep earlier than anticipated.

Summer after sophomore year:

In June, take our free diagnostic SAT and ACT exams to determine which test suits your child best and then start SAT prep or ACT prep (recruited athletes or those needing very large score increases sometimes need to start the process earlier).

Throughout junior year:

Take the SAT/ACT tests until you hit your score goal (ACT scores, in particular, can be deleted at any time, so there’s no downside to re-taking the test).

October of junior year:

Most students take the PSAT (this score does not matter for the vast majority of students) — the results for this test come back in early December of that year.

Summer after junior year and early fall of senior year:

November 1st and 15th of senior year: 

Early application deadlines for most colleges.

We are experts at both in-person and online tutoring.

We were lucky enough to be referred to David at Summit Prep! My son enjoyed working with David as he felt that he really helped him prepare for the ACT. He explained concepts covered on the test as well as the test itself. My son felt confident taking the test and did so well that he only had to take it once!

Eva took on an almost impossible task and seriously worked a miracle! We found out we were moving, and our son had to take the ISEE exam asap. From his practice test to the exam, his scores went up exponentially. We give her 5 enthusiastic stars!
