On December 1, 2016, 123 senior students traveled to 73 employers to shadow professionals in their career of interest. Some students traveled as far as New York City and Washington DC. Out of the 73 employers who hosted students, 22 were alumni ranging from Classes of 1987 to 2007. The other hosts were comprised of current and past parents, spouses of faculty and staff, and friends within the Archmere community.
Thank you to all of our hosts who participated and made this program a success!
