Founded by the Norbertine Fathers, and rooted in the traditions of academic excellence, social development, community service, and faith reflection, Archmere Academy continues to adapt to an ever-changing world, employing best practices for 21st century learning and challenging today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Archmere students are inspired to achieve by the relationships they form with their teachers, friends, administrators and staff. It is through these connections that our students find the support, guidance, motivation, and knowledge they need to reach their highest achievement and find true, personal distinction.

Archmere focuses on the whole student, offering technology-infused programs, a rigorous curriculum supported by student-teacher partnerships, a host of extracurricular opportunities, and a fully utilized collegiate-style campus to create the exceptional educational experience that is Archmere.

Archmere offers an elite educational program. Since its founding in 1932, Archmere has been known for its rigorous academic program that includes over 20 A.P. courses, top credentialed, dedicated, and experienced faculty, and consistent above-average SAT results. Our academic program is strengthened by the technology infusion (1:1 MacBook Pro laptop program) and is balanced by numerous opportunities to participate in sports, community service, performing and fine arts, and over 25 other extra-curricular clubs and activities. In short, Archmere is a place where students come to discover who they are by exploring interests, developing skills, and nurturing talents.
