Delbarton Decides on Gowan Group

The Delbarton School, Morristown NJ, decided to hire Gowan Group for extensive research and program audits. We will be working closely with Delbarton over the next year. 

Delbarton is a 7-12th grade Catholic school for boys. Founded in 1927 Delbarton has a long history of educating boys with a strong liberal arts, college prep program grounded in the Catholic faith. 

Our work with Delbarton will include significant research: focus groups, surveys, demographic study, and a competitive analysis. The data-driven research will lay the foundation for long-term program audits focused on the success of their Middle School.
