In the fall of our Centennial year, we began a discussion of a S.T.E.A.M. program that would pivot our college prep program on science, technology, engineering, art, and math. But it did not take long for us to realize we could go further. Our campus is situated on the noble Rappahannock, one of Virginia's cleanest rivers. St. Margaret's is the only campus of its kind to be situated on its banks with a small town enfolding it.
That town is Tappahannock, VA, where salt meets freshwater. This natural confluence of nature's water is analogous to St. Margaret's educational outlook. It is where a century-old girls school finds its students in the community and of the community. The education is whole and holistic, vibrant, and relevant to our students' future. In going further with S.T.E.A.M, we decided to bring our River into the center of the educational experience - we call this S.T.R.E.A.M.
The interconnectedness of S.T.R.E.A.M provides the students at St. Margaret's with an exceptional educational experience. The River's science and history provide a distinct academic advantage, while its recreational opportunities provide students with the ideal setting to learn and grow outdoors.
