River Program

St. Margaret's School offers a waterfront campus on the banks of the Rappahannock River. The river weaves through all aspects of school life, from the classroom to activities. Jump into a sailboat, take care of an oyster garden, conduct science labs from our beach, and explore our riverfront community. 

  • A STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) curriculum that utilizes the river as a classroom

  • Varsity and club sports including crew that incorporate the river and our river lawn for conditioning and team building

  • Teaching environmental preservation and lifelong stewardship through community partnerships and projects, such as oyster restoration in the Chesapeake Bay

  • Fun on the water with sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, tubing, and boat rides
Join us on the river and expand your horizons.
The river is our classroom and our playground.
