Student Life

Clubs & Organizations

Archmere Academy students are well-rounded. They develop a wide range of experiences and skills that leads them to success in the future. Because of its small size, Archmere students can balance their academic schedules with options to play sports and participate in the arts.

With nearly 40 clubs, activities, organizations, and student-run events, students have a wide variety of opportunities to find an activity they love to do on campus. Students are encouraged to propose and lead new clubs inspired by personal interests.

List of 5 items.

  • National Honor Society

    Archmere’s National Honor Society officers self-manage important projects at Archmere, like the Peer Tutoring Program, the Clothing Drive, and the Adopt-a-Family Program. Our students take on real-world responsibility for service oriented work that instills the values of community and respect for others.
  • National Science Honor Society

    The SNHS was chartered to encourage and recognize scientific and intellectual thought, advance the student's knowledge of classical and modern science, encourage a dedication to the pursuit of scientific knowledge that benefits all of mankind, and to encourage students to pursue the study of science, engineering, and math in college. Criteria for membership are rigorous. Students must take science classes all 8 semesters. A student must have taken Honors Biology, Honors Chemistry, and Honors Physics or the AP equivalent. Each semester grade of freshman, sophomore, and junior years and the first semester and third quarter grades in senior year must be at least a B+ or a B if it is an AP course.
  • National Art Honor Society

    We offer our students the opportunity to join the National Art Honor Society by invitation. The goal of the Archmere Chapter is to inspire and recognize students who have shown outstanding ability in the visual arts. NAHS strives to encourage its members to work toward attainment of the highest standards in visual arts, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and the community. Our main focus this year is to provide community service to different organizations in the area with workshops for the homeless, urban playground designs, and fundraising.

Yearbook: The Patio
Throughout my years at Archmere, my teachers encouraged me to participate in math competitions and take advanced math classes that very few high schools offer. These unique opportunities showed me a new side of quantitative analysis that truly fascinated me and inspired me to lead the DE Stock Market Club and explore my interest in mathematics beyond the traditional classroom environment.
