The Admissions Process

List of 4 items.

  • Complete an Inquiry Form & schedule a Shadow Visit at Archmere

    The very first step in the admissions process is complete a standard inquiry form and schedule your shadow visit. This can all be done in one, convenient step!
  • Complete Your Application in Your 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 will be able to complete your application, download our 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/Scholarship Exam

    The entrance/scholarship exam for 8th graders will be administered on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. in the Student Life Center. If you have a conflict with the Saturday testing date, an alternate date is offered on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at 7:30 a.m. in the Student Life Center. 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 one week after the exam.
  • Schedule an Interview with the Admissions Office

    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.
