A Sisterhood of Leaders

On the banks of the Rappahannock River, St. Margaret's School dares girls to belong to a diverse community of leaders, 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.
