Archmere Academy’s Mentor & Career Networking Program promotes the development of professional relationships between current students, alumni, parents, and trustees. The purpose of this program is to connect current students and young alumni with professionals in the Archmere community who can provide college experiences and real-world business advice.  Our hope is that current students and alumni can utilize Archmere Academy’s connections through this program and ultimately grow to understand the importance of professional networking.
 
This program is open to the entire Archmere community, but we kindly request that only current students and alumni sign up to find a mentor.  All alumni, current and past parents, trustees, and friends of the Archmere community are welcome to sign up as a mentor.
