"[My Math Peer Tutor] really wanted me to succeed! At the beginning of the year, I was making some C’s and the occasional D. After spending a year with my tutor, I was making B’s and the occasional A! She was so helpful, and I still ask her sometimes for help on math. I absolutely loved having a peer tutor.” - Rachel Bruce '21

My math memory involves mrs Farmer, I was diagnosed with a learning disorder in math and I had a hard time with Algebra, she helped me whenever she could and I tried to keep up as best I could, I had to repeat algebra 1. But she let me take my time which helped and she made sure to help me after school. I never forgot that. She is a great math teacher.

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.
