My four years at SGHS was truly wonderful in every way. The education I received and the friendships I had were the foundation for the woman I am today. I will always cherish these memories. I send love and heartfelt blessings to everyone there for a happy, fulfilling and successful future in your new home school. As an alumna of St. Gertrude High School, "I will always love you, in all that I say and in all that I do:" Jeanie McLaughlin Class of 1966

Love the smiles and the positive outlooks on their faces!

Whether you were with us in person or in spirit, the grand opening and dedication of the McMurtrie-Reynolds Pavilion was a night to remember! It was a wonderful celebration and an expression of gratitude to the donors who made The Campaign for Benedictine a tremendous success. We are especially grateful to the members of the Benedictine monastic communities and His Excellency, Bishop Barry Knestout, for making the event both a prayer and a blessing for our schools and Catholic education in Richmond. ...

The Saint Gertrude Advantage


Saint Gertrude is the only high school in the Richmond area where all classes are 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.


A 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.


With the recent announcement of the Benedictine Schools of Richmond, we joined Benedictine College Prep in Goochland where a new, state-of-the-art academic is being built for Saint Gertrude.

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.
