St. Margaret's School

St. Margaret's School


For nearly 100 years, St. Margaret's School has been a place for girls to learn, grow, and thrive in all aspects of life. We offer day, five-day boarding and boarding programs for girls in grades 8–12 and a postgraduate year. Girls gain strong academic skills here, develop leadership ability, and build character to prepare them to be successful on whatever path they take. Grounded in Episcopal values, we provide a welcoming, inclusive experience for girls from across the country and around the world, including girls with autism who are capable of studying at grade level and plan to go to college. We believe in the power of all girls, value your uniqueness and respect your views. At St. Margaret's, you will belong to a close community full of opportunities that promote competence and build confidence to help you overcome challenges, try new things, and become your personal best.

St. Margaret's School provides a learning environment where girls know they belong, are challenged and supported tobelieve in themselves, and prepared to become their best. We inspire girls to reach their full potential and make a better world.  The world is a better place because of generations of St. Margaret's women who found their voice and made a difference in their communities. In a Christian environment, founded on the Episcopal tradition, girls develop honor and character, an appreciation for the uniqueness of each individual, and a desire to give to the world. 

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.

From the minute you arrive on campus, we want you to develop your talents, find your voice, and most important, be yourself..
