A century old girls' boarding and day school serving grades 8-PG on the banks of the noble Rappahannock River. A college prep program that promotes a holistic educational experience in mind, body, and spirit.
On the banks of the Rappahannock River, St. Margaret's School dares girls to belong to a diverse community of leaders, student-athletes, and scholars. To believe in themselves with deep-rooted confidence. To become women who are driven to lead the next generation.
Our students, faculty, staff, and alumnae dare to lead by example. We push the limits of a traditional education. We believe in each other and empower everyone to believe in themselves. And we imagine new possibilities for the world and how we can lead the way. Guided by curiosity and bonded by a shared passion for discovery, St. Margaret's girls pursue their wildest dreams.
When a girl joins the St. Margaret's community, she begins her journey to prepare for a life of learning. Our integrated college prep program cultivates her unique passions and inherent strengths and guides her to succeed academically in college and beyond. Most importantly, St. Margaret's motto, "as we grow in age, may we grow in grace," invokes the depth of this educational experience in mind, body, and spirit. It fosters the self-awareness and ambition needed to choose a college to know who she is and where she is going.
