The Archmere Academy profile provides information about the school, testing information, rising senior class specific statistics, and past matriculations.

Fall College Visits

Archmere welcomes college representatives from across the country and around the world between the months of September and November. On an average year approximately 140 colleges and universities visit to talk with our students. We greatly appreciate the time admission offices dedicate to educating our students and staff on their particular school and hope that representatives will also share their knowledge about the process in order to reiterate what students are hearing from our office. Seniors are welcome to attend college visits with permission from their teacher and juniors are invited to choose to attend up to two visits with teacher permission. The College Counseling staff will make every effort to meet with all college representatives during their visit.

Archmere is now using RepVisits to schedule all college visits. Please click here to schedule a visit for the fall of 2018. If you are having trouble scheduling please contact Liz Lyon at (302) 798-6632 x772.

In addition to our campus programming we advertise and see regular attendance at the following programs: Wilmington Case Studies (May), Delaware Association of Independent Schools (DAIS) College Fair (St. Marks High School, April), NACAC Philadelphia College Fair (November), New Castle County College Fair at University of Delaware (October), and the PACAC Main Line Fair (April).

Our Staff

Archmere Academy has a college counseling model of post secondary advisement. Two full-time counselors separate classes by alphabet and work with students and their families on preparing for post secondary options. Archmere also employs four guidance counselors, each taking on the responsibilities for a given class; and a learning support specialist. The College Counseling Office and Guidance Office both report to the Principal.
