Archmere Academy Gives Back

Empathetic leadership is a key component of Archmere Academy's mission. We integrate service to others in need into the Archmere experience. In addition to the regular outreach programs, the student-run Community Service Club plans food drives through the school year to support local food banks, like Claymont Community Center and Knollwood Community Center. There are also opportunities for service within the Archmere community through our annual blood drive and tag days that raise funds for various local charities and organizations.

      The B+ Club at Archmere thought out of the box in the 2020-2021 school year to give back by hosting a poinsettia drive with the help of Marini's Produce.


      Just over 40 Archmere faculty and students donated 49 pints of blood in 2021, saving the lives of nearly 200 local patients in the Delmarva area..


      In 2021, Pauline Hartman, Alexa Mervine and Barb Nather, all Class of 2022, raised over $153,000. Combined with the two other teams from Archmere Academy, students raised more than $254,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society last year.

Archmere Academy is a private, Catholic, college preparatory co-educational academy,
grades 9-12 founded in 1932 by the Norbertine Fathers.
