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 who learn, live, and play together, building strong bonds and creating cherished memories. Whether you are a day student, five-day boarding, or full-time boarding student, SMS is home. We share values, based on our Honor Code, respect and trust one another to maintain a high level of personal integrity that is reflected in our Be Statements , and uphold the integrity of the school.

And life on the river is good. On weekends, we have a lot of fun together on outdoor adventures, boating, fishing, water skiing, tubing, canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, swimming, camping, and just relaxing with friends on the dock and beach. Our social calendars are filled with shopping, eating out, attending socials with other schools, visiting museums and other 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 that will help you grow into the person you want to be.
