Community

At St. Margaret’s Episcopal School we are grateful for our long and productive relationship with the City of San Juan Capistrano, our neighbors and the greater Orange County community. We take seriously our role in the community, especially in the areas of service and as a responsible and conscientious employer and citizen.
 
Since 1979, St. Margaret’s has provided an exceptional education rooted in our Episcopal identity and values to over 2,000 alumni. Throughout our history, we have sought meaningful ways to be involved in local activities, provide service to community needs, and be a desirable employer and conscientious citizen and neighbor within the San Juan community.
 
Each year, our students donate more than 10,000 service hours to the local community. The classroom, meeting halls, athletics and performing arts facilities of our 22-acre expansive and well-equipped campus are made available to community organizations, including the new 45,000 square-foot Performing Arts Center. St. Margaret’s participates and sponsors many community organizations and events, including the San Juan Chamber of Commerce, the San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association and the Swallows’ Day Parade, the San Juan Summer Nites Concert Series, and the West Coast Film Festival.
 
More than 20 years ago, St. Margaret’s launched Special Camp for Special Kids an exceptional and revolutionary educational, recreational, service-oriented summer camp program for children and teens with disabilities. Further, in 2006, St. Margaret’s launched Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano a year-round tuition-free academic enrichment program, culminating with an intensive six-week summer program, serving nearly 100 highly motivated, low-income middle and high school students from San Juan Capistrano. St. Margaret’s also offers academic, arts and athletics exploration summer camps open to all students in the community.
 
Please view the St. Margaret’s Community Impact Report that details our positive economic impact to the City of San Juan Capistrano of more than $29 million annually, and ongoing partnerships and service to the community.
 
We are honored to be a part of San Juan Capistrano’s vibrant and dedicated community and we look forward to our continued work together for the good of its residents and businesses.
