Affording Archmere

Making It Possible

Tuition
Tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year is $29,700. Fees included in tuition are library, athletic, yearbook, and all regular school fees. There is an additional $400 technology fee due in September for Archmere's one-to-one Mac laptop program. 

Books and Uniforms
Estimates for new books range from $200 to $400, depending on a student's academic schedule. Uniforms range in price from $150 to $250. The AUK Attic school store, run by The Mothers' Guild, offers discounted prices for used books and uniforms. 

Scholarships and Grants
Scholarships and grants are awarded based on superior academic performance and financial need. Approximately 70% of the incoming Class of 2024 was awarded a merit scholarship and/or tuition assistance. Students with superior performance on the entrance examination and a strong academic record may qualify for an annual scholarship. 

Any additional financial awards are need-based grants. Families must submit a financial aid application and their latest IRS 1040 form to the School Scholarship Service by mid-January (or prior to the admission interview) in order to help determine the value of the grant. Grants do not generally exceed one-half of tuition. 

The Diversity Scholarship Program
Through the Diversity Scholarship Program, promising students of traditionally under-represented populations whose families demonstrate financial need can receive an Archmere education. Students who meet Archmere's academic qualifications and complete the admissions process may receive significant four-year grants based on financial need.
