Arch grew up on boarding school campuses and went to a boarding school. His father was a boarding school headmaster, and his mother was Chair of a Board of Trustees for two decades at a boarding school. Boarding school is in his blood. He began his teaching career at St. George's School in Rhode Island where his duties included supervising a dorm, coaching football, swimming, and lacrosse, serving as Chair of the History Department, acting as Assistant Director of Athletics, teaching a wide variety of history courses, advising the debate club, and directing the Summer School. He was subsequently appointed Headmaster at Gilman School in Maryland before accepting the Head of School job at Asheville School in 2002.
He enjoys the outdoors and particularly enjoys fly fishing and hiking in the mountains. His dream escape is the family camp in Upper Saranac Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.
