The Admissions Committee considers many factors when evaluating an applicant, including the required application components and, beyond that, what it would be like to have her join our community.
We believe in the unique possibility and potential of every girl who applies to The Archer School for Girls. An important tenet of Archer’s mission is to create a diverse and inclusive student body that reflects the face of Greater Los Angeles. In an effort to promote access and evaluate applicants based solely on their academic record and talents, the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) will no longer be a requirement in the admissions process at Archer. In other words, Archer will not accept ISEE scores or other standardized test scores from any applicants. Instead, applicants will complete a writing exercise for which advance preparation will be unnecessary.
A student’s application gives the Committee a complete picture - her strengths, interests, and personal qualities. We seek families that will support and uphold the mission of the School and students who are best suited for our program and who we believe will contribute positively to our community.
Archer's online application process is designed to be clear and simple. Once you create an online account, a comprehensive checklist and directions ensure that you don't miss a deadline or forget to submit important paperwork. An application summary can be found below.
