As a school founded by the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia for "girls of character and ability," an important part of our mission is to ensure students who meet our admission criteria have access to the educational opportunities we provide. To help families afford a St. Margaret's education, we offer a variety of payment plans, access to loan information, scholarships, and need-based financial aid.

We partner with School and Student Services (SSS) through the National Association of Independent Schools, which provides financial aid analysis to private and independent schools. Based on financial information submitted by a family, SSS calculates funds a family should have available for educational expenses. St. Margaret's uses this information to determine the amount of financial aid that can be offered.

St. Margaret's is accepting applications for the 2021-22 school year. For more information, please complete an inquiry form or email our Office of Admission at for more information.
