Our programs are designed to enrich the lives of a diverse community of girls:
Academic Program: we know how to successfully teach girls to be life-long learners, to succeed in the classroom, in college, and in life.
International Program: girls from around the world find their second home at St. Margaret's as part of a community of supportive sisters. Our International Program is one of the most established among American boarding schools and our international students represent nearly 30% of our community.
Arts Program: creativity is nurtured here and girls are given the opportunity to explore new areas of expression and gain new skills through our visual and performing arts programs.
Athletics Program: girls develop character, work to become part of a team, and push to be skilled student-athletes in our Athletics Program that coaches them to Be St. Margaret's. A wide range of afternoon activities also provide opportunities for girls to focus on their overall fitness and well-being.
River Program: taking advantage of our beautiful riverfront campus, this program spans the curriculum, co-curriculum, and residential life by engaging girls in hands-on science, outdoor adventures, and volunteer service.
Minimester: students participate in a two-week winter term where they take enrichment courses or go on an educational trip. Seniors spend two weeks as an intern in a field of potential career interest through the Independent Study Program.
Wheat Learning Center: our innovative resource center provides services that foster a productive learning culture by supporting the needs of the individual student, including girls with autism who are studying at grade-level. Through the Wheat Center, we provide enrichment services and academic support, teach study and organization skills, and promote healthy curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and perseverance.
