Girls Belong at SMS


girls belong at sms

Three words mean a lot to girls at St. Margaret’s School: Belong. Believe.Become. They are at the core of the St. Margaret’s experience, how we live, learn, grow, and thrive together.

We believe in the power of all girls and provide a boarding and day school environment for grades 8-12 and postgraduate where girls become their best. We teach them to succeed in the classroom and in life, and tailor our curriculum to how girls learn. They explore areas of interest through our Minimester session, conduct independent study, take classes online, and earn college credits through dual-enrollment.

Our River Program teaches girls about science in everyday life, emphasizing an appreciation for our natural environment, and providing opportunities for exploration and service learning. Athletics is where girls learn what teamwork is all about and have a lot of fun. And, our Visual and Performing Arts programs engage girls in creative learning and expression.

Get to know us better and discover what a girl becomes at St. Margaret’s School.
