On Monday night, we held our annual spring choral concert. Honors Ensemble, CCM, Tower Ringers, Chorus, and Belle Tones all performed. Songs ranged from Katy Perry's "Roar" to Mendelssohn's "Lift Thine Eyes." Awards were also given out to students who excelled in the music program, while seniors received flowers. As it was Department Chair and Music Teacher Lisa Fusco's last concert after 33 years at SGHS, there were plenty of tears! Belle Tones dedicated "Stand by Me" to her and at the end of the concert, a group of alumnae joined current students on stage for a special performance of "Music Changes the World." ...

So grateful to have taught at Saint Gertrude for the past 33 years! Lots of musical moments shared with students!

We LOVE Lisa Fusco! She will be dearly missed... one of a kind. The school will have a huge hole that may never be completely filled again! Thank you for all you have done for the school and our daughters! 😘

It was a wonderful opportunity to come and make music with you Lisa Fusco! It was a fantastic concert! Thank you for all you have done for SGHS!

Senior Salute, a day when we honor our seniors and their next steps, was held today. We began with our seniors breaking into small groups to speak with our Benedictine Sisters of Virginia about their faith journey at SGHS and the values they will take with them when they leave us. Next, the girls headed to the garden for the traditional college t-shirt photo. Then, they enjoyed a delicious Chipotle lunch provided by the Alumnae Association. One of the big highlights was a beautiful video created by Gabby Rodgers '19 for her classmates, filled with photos and memories from their four years at SGHS. Everyone was in tears! We will miss you Silver and Pink! ... See MoreSee Less

A sweet surprise greeted our girls when they came to school today! Hundreds of colorful post-its with inspirational messages on them were stuck throughout the building. A student, Rachel Bruce '21, decided everyone could use a little pick-me-up as we head toward finals. Thanks Rachel! ... See MoreSee Less

The Saint Gertrude Advantage


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.


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


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.


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.
