Challenge Yourself. Take Learning Risks. Reach Your Potential.

A Rigorous College Prep Curriculum
Archmere’s rigorous college preparatory program challenges students to expand their thinking, sharpen their skills, take ownership of their learning potential, and explore new opportunities that empower them to reach an unprecedented level of personal distinction and achievement.
Committed, Caring, Credentialed Teachers
Archmere’s greatest asset is its committed faculty, an experienced, credentialed, and talented group of women and men dedicated to academic excellence. In the classroom, faculty members focus on a challenging college-prep curriculum dedicated to developing critical thinking skills, intellectual questioning and academic discipline.
The faculty engage students on a personal level in a small, encouraging setting, and teachers help guide the students to become organized, self-motivated, and ultimately, independent learners. Teachers are accessible throughout the school day, before school, during school free periods and after school until 4:30 p.m.
Archmere faculty members are also actively engaged in the students’ lives outside the classroom. Teachers serve as academic advisers, mentors, activity moderators and athletic coaches, helping students to envision a world that extends their values beyond the classrooms.
"I took advantage of the many AP courses offered at Archmere. As a result of a rigorous schedule, I entered college as a sophomore. I found the classwork at one of the top 10 schools in the nation to be 'less' demanding than my courses at Archmere, and I was tremendously well-prepared for my future academic career. I cannot possibly imagine any other school delivering an even remotely-comparable experience."
