Saint Gertrude High School

Did you celebrate GALentine's Day this year? Our girls did! Organized by Women for Change, students could snap pics with their friends in the custom photo booth, make friendship bracelets together, or purchase baked goods and scrunchies for charity. Happy GALentine's Day! ... See MoreSee Less

One of the Seniors who went to Haiti (on a Saint Gertrude trip) was so inspired that she began fundraising to help build a water well on the girls’ campus of Maison Fortune’ Orphanage. ALL of the money raised on GALentine’s Day is going to that project. Girls helping other girls around the world! 💚🐊 🇭🇹

Saint Gertrude High School

What a great day for Gator Athletics! The Varsity Basketball team defeated St. Catherine's School, 50-32 in the 1st round of the LIS Tournament. It was the first time in recent history that the Gators have defeated St. Catherine's three times in one season!

The Gator Swimmers did not disappoint in Day 1 of the VISAA State Swim Meet! The 200 Medley Relay team dropped two seconds to win the B-Finals, Willow Clark takes 7th in the 50 Free and Mary Cornett takes 3rd in the 200 IM!

We are so proud of you, Gators! Good luck to the Indoor Track team tomorrow at the VISAA State Meet at St. Christopher's.

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.
