A century old girls' boarding and day school serving grades 8-PG on the banks of the noble Rappahannock River. A liberal arts college prep program that promotes a holistic educational experience in mind, body, and spirit. In concert with a STEAM program, computer science, engineering, and collaborative program-based design thinking are the bulwarks of a remarkable educational experience.
On the banks of the Rappahannock River, St. Margaret's School invites girls to belong to an inclusive 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 lead by example. We push the limits of a traditional education in concert with a STEAM outlook, "to learn by doing." We believe in each other and empower everyone to believe in themselves. And we imagine new possibilities for the world and how our students will 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.
