We hear it over and over again, from girls who live right down the road and from girls who live halfway around the world: 'The first time I visited, I immediately felt part of the community!'
The St. Margaret's School campus sits on 22 acres comprising a mixture of traditional and West Coast modern buildings, modern Athletics Centre, newly renovated residence houses, swaths of trees, and sweeping views of nearby mountains.
Getting off campus to learn, grow, bond, meet new challenges and experience life outside of the Northwest is an important element of Annie Wright's curriculum. One example is our Junior College Trip: The entire Junior class hops aboard a chartered (and chaparoned) bus and heads south, embarking on a tour of ten West Coast colleges in seven adventurous days.
We may be biased, but we think our historic campus is beautiful in any light! Come see it for yourself by contacting admissions@emmawillard.org and scheduling a visit!
