“Our alumnae are the past, present and future of St. Margaret’s School.”
- Colley W. Bell III, Head of School

In 1921, when opportunities for secondary school education were rare in the rural South, the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia established St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock, Virginia. As the school celebrates its Centennial year, our students move through the historic halls of a school dedicated to the holistic development of the girl, including the provision of college preparatory academics.
The same hallways are filled with voices of a committed faculty who have an endearing passion for working beyond the classroom, on the fields, stages, and our noble Rappahannock River. All are informed by our Episcopal heritage and pledge to an honor code that binds the community to a higher purpose.
Through your Centennial giving, another generation of young women will be empowered to face their futures with honor, grace, and integrity.

Our school’s motto rises from our school prayer, “as we grow in age, may we grow in grace.” Our culture of inclusivity stems from our faith and the education to which it is affixed. Girls continue to attend church services weekly and the Rev. Candine E. Johnson, Ph.D. of neighboring St. John’s Episcopal Church serves as school chaplain. Your Centennial donation will ensure that many more girls benefit from a St. Margaret’s education founded upon Episcopal principles.

OUR NOBLE RIVER
Our next 100 years lead us to a deeper commitment to developing adventurous and curious young women who are also interested in the natural beauty and opportunities a river presents to those on its banks. Our prime location on the banks of the Rappahannock River enables St. Margaret’s to offer a full crew, sailing, kayaking and motor boating experience.
Your Centennial gift will fund a more robust River program. Girls will research nearby waterways and wildlife. Through science and extracurricular programming, students will learn the importance of environmental stewardship
