My favorite day of the school year is graduation. Of course, our Archer girls look polished and beautiful – wearing white dresses, donning fresh floral wreaths in their hair, exhibiting individuality with a choice of footwear which ranges from flats to sky-high heels in a rainbow of color. More importantly, however, walking across the stage to receive diplomas, our graduates are the best version of themselves: confident, thoughtful, informed, humanistic, grateful and prepared. Sitting in the audience this past June, I was overwhelmed with immense pride for what our students accomplished during their Archer education and unbridled hope for their futures and our world.
An Archer girl is bright, creative, kind, and motivated. When she graduates, she is a self-possessed, entrepreneurial young woman with an irrepressible desire to achieve greatness. Once she leaves the walls of Archer, she goes to medical school, starts her own business, becomes a wife and mother, designs interior spaces, defends clients in a courtroom, does scientific research, develops projects in the entertainment industry, gets involved in community organizing, works for fashion designers abroad. The possibilities are endless.
We ask our students to be at once ambitious and joyful. We offer excellence in teaching and learning. We take pride in our unparalleled, research-based teaching methods. Simultaneously, we cherish our happy culture. Archer is known for its inclusive environment that fosters sisterhood and collaboration. We expect our students to lead balanced lives and to find the joy in all that they do - inside and outside the classroom.
Thank you for your interest in Archer. I invite you to attend an open house, a neighborhood coffee, a campus preview, or all three. Please introduce yourself to discuss how Archer and your daughter might be the right match.
