We love to see all our students and the faculty/staff out supporting St. Benedict Church at Oktoberfest! Come on down! We’re having a lot of fun! ... See MoreSee Less

Last night, our alumnae gathered for our annual celebration, Vino on the Veranda. What a fabulous night! The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, and there was much laughter. We also collected donations for Sylvia's Sisters, a non-profit that provides quality feminine hygiene products to disadvantaged girls and women, locally and abroad. And ... of course ... the class of 1960 took home the prize for biggest class attendance. Thanks to everyone for coming out! We'll post more photos next week. ... See MoreSee Less

Sponsors' Day Review is happening today at Benedictine College Preparatory at 3:15 p.m. All are welcome!

For those who are unfamiliar: The Sponsors' Day Review is an important event at our brother school, BCP. Cadets strive to prove their leadership mettle throughout their four years at Benedictine. Those that pass through to the highest ranks earn the title of Sponsoring Officer.
The Sponsor program was founded to provide these officers with support from a female student leader, a Sponsor. The Sponsors' Day Review is the ceremony where these young female leaders are presented to the Corps of Cadets.

Here's a look at this year's Sponsors - pinwheels/pie plates on the ready!

The Saint Gertrude Advantage

ALL GIRL

Saint Gertrude is the only high school in the Richmond area where all classes are exclusively single gender. Statistics continue to show this as an educational advantage for our girls.

SMALL SCHOOL

With fewer than 300 students on our entire campus, each girl is guaranteed the personal attention she deserves. Our average class size is 15.

CATHOLIC + BENEDICTINE

well-rounded education should reflect and reinforce the essential relationship between God, human-kind and the universe — and is respectful of one’s individual faith.

RICHMOND

Because we are located in the heart of historic Richmond, both the size and location of our school allow our teachers to efficiently utilize Richmond as a living, learning laboratory.

At Saint Gertrude, we combine the best of academic tradition, educational innovation, spiritual formation and commitment to the service of others to create a high school experience unlike any other in the greater Richmond area.
