Unlike many other independent schools, Archmere strives to create a diverse student body, awarding 54.3% of financial assistance and scholarships, 35% more than most independent schools, according to NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools). While Archmere carries on Saint Norbert’s passion for learning by extending the opportunity for an elite education to as many students as possible despite income levels, the school is also able to provide a real-world environment for its students to experience as they transition into young adulthood.
