Scholarships & Financial Assistance

Scholarships and grants are awarded based on superior academic performance and financial need. (No athletic scholarships are awarded). Students with superior performance on the entrance examination and a strong academic record are awarded an annual merit scholarship. Archmere also offers several larger academic scholarships based on a combination of the student's entrance exam score, school record and interview.

The Financial Aid Committee seeks to make the Archmere experience possible for the greatest number of families. However, due to the fact that demand for financial aid outweighs our available funds, it is possible that not all families' needs can be met in full.

  • Financial Assistance Process

    Any additional financial awards are need-based grants. Students with strong academic performance whose families are eligible for financial aid must:
      1. Submit a PFS form to SSS (School and Student Services) by January 15, 2021. 
      2. Upload related income tax forms to the School and Student Services website.
        • 2019 Documents by January 15, 2021
        • 2020 Documents by March 31, 2021
    • Deadlines and Conditions

      Forms must be submitted by January 15th in order to help determine the value of the grant. Grants do not exceed one-half of tuition. Annual awards are made from the endowed scholarship funds and other sources.
    • Diversity Scholarship

      Supported by the Archmere community as well as by foundations and the corporate sector, this program affords the opportunity of an Archmere education to gifted students of traditionally under-represented populations whose families demonstrate financial need. Students who meet Archmere's academic qualifications and complete the standard admissions process can receive four-year grants of significant assistance based on financial need.
