St. Margaret's School

St. Margaret's School

Our Mission: St. Margaret's School provides a learning environment where girls know they belong, are challenged and supported to believe in themselves, and prepared to become their best. We inspire girls to reach their full potential and make a better world.


Our Vision: 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. Girls are challenged to be their best in all areas of their lives. By learning to meet these challenges, they develop confidence, resilience, and strength of character. In addition to learning academic and life skills, they become independent, creative, and morally courageous women who are effective communicators. St. Margaret's girls know who they are, what they can do, and how to do it.

The school’s one-of-a-kind STEAM curriculum prepares young women with the skillsets needed in the 21st century by integrating lessons with the nearby river. Environmental science classes work on conduct water testing on boats and

study oyster farming while the engineering class learns about solar panels in the school’s new outdoor classroom and dock. The river is also the source of plenty of fun with boating, sailing, tubing, kayaking, and more!


The school’s The Wheat Center for Innovative Learning and Well-Being Services is led by a full-time counselor and a staff that help students with mental wellness and study skills. As much as St. Margaret’s is a college-prep school, the goal remains that students be prepared for the rigor of life—all its ups and downs. At St. Margaret’s the focus is for girls to strong in mind, body, and spirit.
