New Lower School Parent, Newport Beach
“Our family has been welcomed not only by the entire staff but also by the warm and inclusive St. Margaret's families.”
St. Margaret's Episcopal School seeks students of exemplary character who demonstrate the ability to thrive in an academically demanding program, who show potential for engagement in leadership and service opportunities and whose parents' goals align with those of the school. The Admission Committee evaluates each applicant on a variety of factors, including academic records from current schools, student and parent questionnaires, recommendations from current teachers, interviews and performance on standardized assessments. Children applying to Early Childhood School, Kindergarten and Grade 1 participate in a developmental screening and playgroup. In all divisions, the admission process is rooted in finding the best match between prospective families and St. Margaret's Episcopal School.
