School Life

Believe great things lie ahead for you at St. Margaret's. While academics and studying are a priority, life outside the classroom is active and fun. You become part of a sisterhood of friends from around the world who learn, live, and play together, building strong bonds and creating cherished memories.

We share values, based on our Honor Code, respect and trust one another to maintain a high level of personal integrity reflected in our Be Statements. Our student leaders ensure St. Margaret's is a place where the voices of our community are heard and valued.

Life on the river is good year-round. Our arts programs give girls opportunities to express their creativity. And, student-athletes thrive here.

We have fun together in residential life and co-curricular activities. We go on outdoor adventures, boating, fishing, water skiing, tubing, canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, swimming, camping, and just relaxing with friends on the dock and beach.

We have many clubs for girls with diverse interests, and afternoon activities that help us stay healthy and fit. Our social calendars are filled with shopping, eating out, attending socials with other schools, cultural events, plus rooting for our Scotties at home and away games. There is time for you to pay attention to your personal well-being, and time for you to try new things.
