St. Margaret's meets the needs of each student by offering a college prep curriculum that allows for flexibility based on a girl's maturity, ability, and interests. Placement tests determine which courses a student takes in the areas of English, history, math, science, and modern and classical languages during her first year. In addition to on-campus learning, the school enhances its curriculum by offering courses through One Schoolhouse. Those courses can include AP Statistics, AP Human Geography, AP Government, AP Psychology, AP Art History, etc.
Students may opt to also earn college credit. Each year, the Academic Dean meets with students individually to monitor their progress, select their academic courses, and ensure that graduation requirements are met. Outstanding students are presented with opportunities, such as Advanced Placement/Honors courses in all disciplines, online courses
and dual enrollment
in community college. Students have the opportunity to conduct an independent study
