The Power of All-Girls

St. Margaret's is an all-girls boarding and day school that believes there is enormous potential and power in being a girl. We value the uniqueness of every girl and support her individual learning needs. Girls are surrounded by young, driven women like themselves in a community where students thrive. Students and faculty facilitate a confidence-building environment where girls’ voices are heard, and they’re inspired to be their very best every day. Girls have more opportunities to be engaged in and outside of the classroom, which helps empower girls academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Girls at St. Margaret’s aren’t just students—they are athletes, artist, scientists, explorers, and leaders. Our close-knit community gives girls opportunities to develop their voice, explore their passions, and develop a life-long sisterhood.

We believe in the transformative power of a girls' school. St. Margaret's offers many benefits that can only be found in a single-sex environment:

  • Builds self-confidence
  • Superior academic performance
  • Develops leadership skills
  • Heightened career aspirations
  • Distraction-free classrooms
  • Freedom to find your own voice
  • Greater emphasis on STEM
  • Supportive environment
  • Positive relationships with faculty
  • Encourages well-rounded interests
  • Allows for self-expression
  • Sisterhood bond for a lifetime (see video)

Girls' school graduates are twice as likely to earn a doctoral degree and 80% hold leadership positions after graduation. Our sisterhood of accomplished alumnae credit St. Margaret's for providing the tools they need for success.
