Getting Excited for the 7th Grade Open House!

…And we’re back! With the admissions season now wrapped up for the Class of 2018, Kristin and I have started planning our spring events. The freshman placement tests and spring orientation for the incoming class in May will be here before we know it. But right now, we’re really looking forward to hosting our second annual 7th Grade Open House on Wednesday, April 30th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm!

The Auk Welcomes You! sCFMd19eBSj-914KZ6q-KdEfKJaDZdQVH3lTbSQxtLw

The 7th Grade Open House is an energetic, informative, and entertaining experience. You’ll be welcomed by dozens of cheering Auks as you enter campus from Manor Avenue, then after a short welcome, the students will go on a quick tour in small groups with our students and teachers as the parents stay in the SLC for a brief informational session.

Everyone then meets over in our Performing Arts Center for a brief concert by our Band and Mastersingers.


Finally, we’ll return to the SLC for a social with food and giveaways. Meet our faculty, ask us questions, and above all, have fun!


Much like the Open House in the fall, we would definitely encourage all those interested in attending to pre-register online.

Hope to see you there!

Go Auks!

It’s Live!

Today, Kristin and I launched Archmere’s first ever online application through our website and we are very excited because now prospective students will be able to fill out an application before they even take the Entrance Exam. Our hope is that this will make the admissions process easier for our candidates as they can complete the application at their convenience (there is even an auto-save feature, so it need not be completed in one sitting) rather than wait for a paper application to be mailed with the Entrance Exam results.

To apply online you must first become a candidate by filling out a Shadow Day Inquiry or Prospective Student Inquiry form.

Our Open House (Nov. 17 @ 1pm) is quickly approaching; don’t forget to register online. We hope to see you there!


Online Registration for Events Available Now!

Registration for this year’s admissions events is now open online here.  Archmere’s Open House will be held on Sunday, November 17th starting at 1:00pm in the Performing Arts Center.

The Entrance/Scholarship Exam is a required step to move forward in the admission process and we are offering two dates this year: Saturday December 7th at 9:00am and, if you cannot make that date, Tuesday December 10th at 8:00am.  Drop-off and pick-up will be at the Student Life Center for the test on both days and the exam lasts approximately 2 1/2 hours.  There is a non-refundable fee of $40 to take the exam.
