Admission Process

List of 4 items.

  • COMPLETE YOUR INQUIRY FORM

    The very first step in the admissions process is to complete a standard inquiry form. This is also a great time to schedule your shadow visit. While shadow visits aren't a mandatory part of the admissions process, we highly recommend you take advantage of the opportunity. This can all be done in one convenient step!
  • FILL OUT YOUR APPLICATION AND CANDIDATE PAGE

    Once step one is complete, we will prompt you to create a username and password for the candidate page on the Archmere Parent Portal Page. From that page, you can complete your application, download the required transcript request forms and directly submit teacher recommendation forms (beginning October 3). You must be logged in to view and access these forms. All application materials must be submitted by January 5, in order to be considered for admission. There is a nonrefundable application fee of $60.
  • TAKE THE ENTRANCE EXAM

    The entrance/scholarship exam for 8th graders is November 13 or 14, 2021 with a make-up test scheduled on November 17, 2021. Preregistration is required, along with a $55 registration fee. The registration form can be found on your candidate page upon completion of your application. Results will be released approximately two weeks after the exam.
  • SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW

    Students and their families who have completed all application materials and have taken the entrance exam will be invited to interview with a member of the admissions committee. A suggested time frame and sign-up link for the interview will accompany the entrance exam results.

    If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office at 302-798-6632 ext. 706.
