Help us nurture confident girls who become inspiring women

St. Margaret’s School was founded 110 years ago, at a time when most women did not have the right to vote. We have come a long way since 1908 but there are still many challenges and opportunities that girls and women must be ready to meet as they go out into the world.

At SMS, we strive to give our girls a strong foundation of learning and self-awareness so that they may choose their path and live their best life.

The school motto, “Servite in Caritate” – Service with Love – is central to an SMS education, teaching our students to express heartfelt gratitude by giving back to the community and serving others throughout their lives.

Your tax-deductible donation ensures that our independent, non-profit school continues to offer an enriching and supportive environment, designed to help each SMS student find her voice and her passion.
