Affording Archmere

Making It Possible

Tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year is $34,100. Fees included in tuition are library, athletic, and all regular school fees. There is an additional $450 technology fee for Archmere's one-to-one Mac laptop program. 

Books and Uniforms
Estimates for new books range from $200 to $400, depending on a student's academic schedule. Uniforms range in price from $150 to $250. The AUK Attic school store, run by The Mothers' Guild, offers discounted prices for used books and uniforms. 

Scholarships and Grants
Scholarships and grants are awarded based on superior academic performance and financial need. Approximately 75% of Archmere families received tuition assistance for the 2023-24 academic year. Students with superior performance on the entrance examination and a strong academic record may qualify for an annual merit scholarship. 

Any additional financial awards are need-based grants. Families must submit a financial aid application and their latest IRS 1040 form by mid-January (or prior to the admission interview) in order to help determine the value of the grant. Grants do not generally exceed one-half of tuition.

Archmere is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.

Our Financial Aid Committee seeks to make the Archmere experience possible for the greatest number of families. Archmere aims to enroll a diverse and well-rounded student population made up of a wide variety of students and families that will help foster a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive culture. We look forward to working with you!
