While academics and studying are a priority at St. Margaret's, life outside the classroom is active and fun. Students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills, join clubs according to their interests, or try something new. Some organizations require an application and others are open to all. Extended lunches and other free time allows for meetings and practices. Students always have the option to start their own clubs with a faculty sponsor.
