Student Life


Students Are Empowered with Choice and Self-Expression

At Archmere Academy, students are empowered with the choice to design an academic schedule that includes a wide range of elective offerings in fine and performing arts. Our educational program extends far beyond traditional academic classrooms. It offers multiple opportunities to explore interests, discover new talents, and refine higher-level skills for more experienced artists in our Performing 艺术 Center and Manor Studios.
Archmere values creative expression as an important component of a balanced liberal arts education. We offer opportunities for students to explore vocal and instrumental music, 戏剧, and every aspect of the visual arts. Any student is invited to become an Archmere artist or performer, regardless of prior experience. All students have the choice to elect choral music, 乐队, or one of our many fine arts electives as part of their academic schedule, and two annual 戏剧tic productions provide students with an additional extracurricular opportunity in the arts.
