Where Girls Thrive

Welcome to St. Margaret's!

For 100 years, St. Margaret's girls have belonged to a diverse community of leaders, scholars, student-athletes, and artists. At St. Margaret's School, we prepare girls for success in college and beyond by fostering a global outlook and lifelong intellectual curiosity supported by solid learning skills. Located on Virginia's Rappahannock River banks, we offer a robust college preparatory curriculum and River Program incorporated into our academics, athletics, arts, and activities. Guided by Episcopal tenets that promote faith, reason, and tradition, we help girls to develop their personal integrity and nurture their healthy curiosity. 
We offer day, five-day, and seven-day boarding programs for girls in grades 8–12 and a postgraduate year.
St. Margaret's School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. As a related organization of the Episcopal Church, St. Margaret's respects the applicable policies and governing principles of the Episcopal Church pertaining to nondiscrimination.
