College Planning

St. Margaret's School has offered a college preparatory education for over 100 years on the banks of Virginia's Rappahannock River. Our Office of College Counseling helps navigate students and their families through the process of choosing a college that will be the best fit and align with a student's interests and career aspirations. 

At St. Margaret's, this highly individualized process officially begins during a student's sophomore year then becomes more focused during their junior year with opportunities to visit colleges and meet with admission representatives. We connect students with the SAT, ACT, and PSAT, as well as preparation courses. We also offer a variety of Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment courses through our partnership with Rappahannock Community College, so our students have the opportunity to start earning college credits while attending St. Margaret's. Individual meetings with the Dean of College Counseling continue to take place into a student's senior year as we guide them through the college application process, navigate scholarship opportunities, and support them through their enrollment.

For more information about how we prepare students to become their best and be a competitive college applicant, contact our Office of Admission:
