Co-Curriculum & Residential Life
Living in a boarding school community provides a very unique opportunity for our students and St. Margaret’s understands that a great deal of learning happens outside the classroom. With this in mind, we have crafted a Co-Curriculum Program that challenges our students to become confident, responsible, and self-aware individuals. By meeting students where they are socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and intellectually, the components of the Co-Curriculum Program work collectively to establish connections between individuals and promote a sense of community. The Co-Curriculum consists of two parts:
Co-curriculum meetings are grade-based and occur weekly, allowing grades to bond through event planning and other activities. Meetings are devoted either to class business or to a developmentally appropriate topic area. Class sponsors organize and direct class events, while other meetings emphasize personal growth and development, safety, and health-consciousness.
Residential Life Program
The Residential Life Programs is specifically geared toward our boarding students. This program offers a structured and nurturing environment for students to grow. Boarding students live in three dormitories and each dormitory mirrors the greater school population by mandating a mix of both domestic and international students, new and returning students, and students of different grade levels. The boarding community gathers every Monday night to inform, promote awareness, and create community within the boarding population. Topics range from community forums and student-led presentations to games and activities. Each meeting is designed to reinforce the five tenets that guide the Residential program: Faith, Community, Respect, Understanding, and Diversity.
