Presidential Fun Facts: The High School Edition
Joe Biden: Archmere Academy
Vice President Joe Biden attended Archmere Academy—a Roman Catholic college perperatory school—in Clayton, Delaware. He graduated in 1961.
Biden was an allstar halfback/wide receiver on his high school's football team, and he helped lead the perpetually losing team to an undefeated season in his senior year. Go Auks! He also played on Archmere's baseball team. (What a show-off.)
But Biden wasn't just about sports, sports, and more sports. During his high school years, he participated in an anti-segregation sit-in at a local theater in Wilmington, Delaware. Biceps, and brains—what a guy!
