St. Margaret’s School opens for the 97th year

St. Margaret’s School, an Episcopal girls’ school for grades 8-12 and a postgraduate year, opened last week in its 97th session with a service held at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Tappahannock. The year began with 110 students, 31 day students and 79 boarding. The student body is 70% domestic and 30% international, representing 14 countries, including students from across the United States. Admission is on a rolling basis and the school will continue enrolling students throughout the year.

Head of School Catherine M. Sgroi commented, “We open the school year with many familiar faces returning, and with the largest group of new Scotties we’ve seen in recent years. We are also very excited to have the largest group of day students attending the school in recent years, demonstrating the continued value of St. Margaret’s to the local community. We are committed to educating girls and to helping them become their best by supporting their unique learning styles so they can be the leaders and innovators of the future.”

St. Margaret’s has 25 teaching faculty, and offers a readiness-based curriculum that encourages curiosity, fosters creative thinking, and challenges girls to push hard to achieve, said Sgroi. With an average class size of 10 students, girls receive the individual attention and support they need. Students at St. Margaret’s develop honor and character along with academic and life skills to help them become independent and morally courageous women prepared to make a positive difference in our complex world.
