Welcome to Benilde-St. Margaret’s, we are delighted you are here!
Every day, BSM students in grades 7-12 walk through our doors and into an educational environment that is truly transformative. Guided by our mission and rooted in the Catholic traditions of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the Christian Brothers, and the Benedictines, a BSM education is designed to enliven the hearts and minds of our students to achieve their highest potential.
At BSM, your student will have endless opportunities to learn new skills, showcase their talents, apply their knowledge, grow in faith, and cultivate their personal passions. Our talented faculty and staff utilize innovative and rigorous pedagogy to cultivate hands-on and experiential learning environments that prepare students for college and beyond.
Students can take advantage of an incredible range of athletic, artistic, academic, and other co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. From hockey to speech, fly fishing to sustainability, and everything in between, I am confident there is something—or lots of things—for your student to enjoy and excel at here at BSM.
Faith is at the center of everything we do, and we accompany students on their personal faith journey in a variety of ways. Between regular all-school Masses, thought-provoking Theology courses, service-learning activities, retreats, and more, students are supported in a faith community that fosters belonging and helps them see the role of faith in their lives.
As we celebrate 50 years of Benilde-St. Margaret’s, it is easy to see what makes us distinctive. We are a community of care where students are known by name, loved without distinction, challenged to be their best in all ways, and celebrated, in the words of John Baptist De La Salle, as “living images of Jesus.” Students who learn in this kind of community cannot help but graduate with a heart for service and the skills to succeed in an ever-changing world. We are excited to partner with you, providing your child with unmatched opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive.
I am overjoyed to be back on campus working alongside our incomparable faculty and staff to provide this distinctive education to a new generation of students. A BSM education is a lifelong gift; one that continues to impact my life along with the lives of alums around the globe. I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about the community your child will join when you invest in a BSM education and to join me on campus where you can see and feel the BSM difference first-hand. We would be thrilled to include you and your child in the ever-growing Red Knight family.
