Josie Bahedry

Parent of Lauren '05 and Hanna '10


We are immigrants and Archer became our family. Parenting is a minefield. There are so many fears and sources of information. When you invest in a school like Archer, you’re saying my daughter is important, and her education is important.

People are nervous to talk about financial aid, but I see it as an honor. I want my daughters and I to be the face of it. My girls Lauren and Hanna have ended up teaching me. When the two of them are together, I sit back and watch. They talk about politics and literature. What I saw initially in those Archer girls back when we were applying, I see in mine now. I’m never giving up on the School because they never gave up on us.
