What Constitutes a Complete Experience?

A well-rounded education includes a balanced program of extracurricular activities, and Archmere offers a wide variety of activities from athletics to theater and many clubs in between.

Today’s colleges seek students who show a dedication over their four years to an activity or sport, demonstrating a commitment through quality time to a particular activity, rather then creating a laundry list of superficial involvements.

Archmere offers a variety of extracurricular activities with different commitment levels. Some activities such as an athletic team or Class Office call for full time attention, limiting other possibilities. Other activities such as Fencing, High School Bowl or one of the many agencies of the Community Service Club enable a student to handle two or three activities at once.

While Archmere encourages students to involve themselves in some extracurricular activity, we do caution them to avoid overextending themselves.
