I have experienced and been a part of a plethora of amazing activities, clubs and sports at Benilde-St. Margaret’s, one of the most influential clubs being Link Crew. Link Crew is a program offered to students once they reach their junior year of high school. The program helps incoming freshmen adjust from junior high to high school and assists incoming transfer students.

Change is a requirement in any school that is serious about their mission in an ever-changing world. Our history at Benilde-St. Margaret’s reinforces that very notion. It is seen in the birth of St. Margaret’s Academy and Benilde High School to the formation of Benilde-St. Margaret’s. It is apparent in the adoption of college credit opportunities and the investment in educational technologies.

We’re in the Christmas spirit at Benilde-St. Margaret’s! To celebrate the season, students, faculty and staff have produced a short Christmas Carpool Karaoke video (2:19) to the tune, “Jingle Bells." We hope the video brings extra joy this Advent and Christmas as we wait for the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ. From our classrooms and our cars, Merry Christmas and God Bless from Benilde-St. Margaret's!
As I walk the halls of BSM with prospective families, I can’t help but be reminded of my own journey to BSM. It started back when I was in junior high. I grew up in Minnetonka and was attending public school. New neighbors moved in next door and I quickly became fast friends with the Hickey family and future BSM alums Bill (’77), Bob (’80) and Tom (’83).
Best Christmas, worst Christmas, all at once. It was December 25, 2009. Our two daughters, age 19 and 21 were home from college for Christmas, and we were enjoying our long-standing family tradition of opening presents that were left by Santa Claus. My husband’s father, Norman Skinner was 85 and had been battling cancer for a while, fighting hard but slowly losing ground each day.
