Courses & Curriculum

St. Margaret's meets the needs of each student by offering a skills-based 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 foreign languages during her first year. All students receive support to become active participants in their education and achievement. 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 participate in Minimester to explore areas of interest, and conduct independent study.
