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.
Once you start high school (or before), we are here to support you if you need help in any academic subjects and/or if you are struggling to stay motivated and succeed. 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.
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.
Early application deadlines for most colleges.
Current sophomores need to plan their testing more strategically than students in most years. Why? Because in their junior year the SAT will be changing. Here is what to keep in mind in the year ahead.
