Monthly College Counseling Update: April 2019

May 1 Decision Day is Coming! 

On May 1st, we will celebrate College Decision Day with the seniors. We do so to recognize their Archmere accomplishments and celebrate their futures. Seniors will wear apparel from their future schools and gather on the steps of St. Norbert’s at the end of the day for a class photo, just as they will at graduation a month later. The day will also include an all-day photo booth, Rita’s Water Ice, and other fun activities. Everyone is welcome to join in on the "end of the day" fun.  

Juniors and Sophomores are welcome to participate in the After School College Workshops on Monday, May 20th. Representatives from Fairfield, Lynn, WashU, Muhlenberg, Syracuse, and Lehigh will be presenting on Supplemental Essays, EA/ED, and Understanding Fit. The program will run from 2:45 to 4 pm and students will have the ability to attend two sessions. To register, visit  

That evening is the Wilmington Case Studies program at Salesianum High School. Students and parents will have the opportunity to review applications with college representatives in attendance. After the application review, the representatives in attendance will participate in a college fair. The program will start at 6 pm, please arrive early to account for parking and registration. If you plan to attend, please register at
