The students are always lively as they walk to and from their college prep classes to their AP classes.

The constant motivation of a student to become the best version of themselves and to represent who they want to be is cultivated at Archmere Academy.
I am an alum of Archmere Academy and without question attending Archmere was the best decision of my life. I was prepared for and admitted to my #1 college of choice and have been able to successfully pursue a career aligned with my passion. The faculty and staff who taught me 20 years ago-many of whom are still with Archmere-left a defining and enduring impact on me. There is an authentic warmth to the community that you will not find anywhere else, and a level of quality in every facet of the school's programming that is unmatched.
Archmere Academy has had such a large impact on my life. Never before have I met teachers so dedicated to the success of their students and genuinely concerned with the well-being of each individual. The community aspect of the school is easily their most defining as it provides an unparalleled emotional and beyond academics support system. Archmere teaches students to live with compassion and integrity, stressing community service and concern for others at all times. Additionally, the faculty itself is phenomenal. AP teachers, such as Mr. Klinge, are renowned in their fields and provide challenging and stimulating classes for students. Students are provided with opportunities to travel to France, Spain, Belize, and many other places around the world to experience new cultures and further their academic pursuits. This school leaves students with a holistic educational experience that will continue to shape their lives beyond granduation.
