President's Welcome

Welcome to Benilde-St. Margaret’s School!

Welcome to Benilde-St. Margaret’s, a dynamic community dedicated to developing well-rounded students and compassionate leaders. Through rigorous academics, active faith development, and an incredible breadth of high-quality co-curricular opportunities, BSM nurtures and challenges its students to reach their highest potential in body, mind, and spirit. BSM’s focus on the whole person allows students to maintain balance and flourish.

BSM’s uniquely caring experience, combined with its proven track record of excellence, attracts families from across the Twin Cities prepared to invest wisely in a high-quality education. BSM further sets itself apart through innovative programs and real-world experiences that encourage students to showcase their talents, apply their knowledge, and cultivate their personal passions.

As a Catholic institution, BSM instills in its students the core values of faith, integrity, and respect for all individuals. Students are offered countless opportunities to embrace and carry out BSM’s Catholic legacy. Through service learning, as just one example, BSM students are invited to deepen their faith through collaborative, hands-on projects that leave a meaningful, positive impact on the world.

Perhaps most notably, the vibrant BSM community is incomparable. BSM students and families develop deep-rooted relationships during—and after—their time at the school. Members of the BSM Red Knight family are scattered all over the globe yet are connected through an exceptional bond. 

Indeed, it is the Red Knight community spirit that pulled me to serve as BSM’s Interim President decades after I graduated. I am honored to be back at BSM, and I am inspired by the positive energy palpable in its hallways. I want to sincerely thank everyone who makes BSM such a unique place, and I invite all prospective students, families, and friends to BSM’s campus to learn more about this special school.
