St. Margaret’s Boarding School for Girls' mission is expressed through a simple, three-word phrase: Belong. Believe. Become. At St. Margaret’s School (SMS), every girl will undertake this journey in one form or another.

Belong - SMS uses the word “belong” because St. Margaret’s students are an unusually close, inclusive group. The supportive, non-judgmental community gives students the confidence to try new things and discover new talents.

Believe - St. Margaret’s School uses the word “believe” to reference the power St. Margaret’s students harness once they learn to believe in themselves. Their tradition as an Episcopal school also teaches girls to believe in something greater than themselves. Under St. Margaret’s Honor Code, students learn that they can believe in each other.

Become - St. Margaret’s School uses the word become to complete the sequence of growth an SMS student experiences during her time here. Students graduate prepared to realize their full potential and success in a challenging world while knowing they will always have a place within the SMS community.

The historic boarding school campus is located on the beautiful Rappahannock River in the small and safe town of Tappahannock, Virginia. The weather here is known for being not too hot and not too cold, experiencing all four seasons. Tappahannock is in close proximity to airports and the nation’s capital.
