"Earlier this week, we posted photos from a government class field trip to visit with various state legislators. This trip not only provided an opportunity for our students to see government processes in action, but allowed them to share with our elected officials the importance of a Catholic education. The discussion that took place on the post quickly turned into an unproductive pro-life debate (with a lot of false information) which led to our decision to remove the post completely. Saint Gertrude is proud and remains committed to living and teaching our Benedictine values. In accordance with our core values, we exhibit high moral character in the way we show respect for all life and we create a nurturing and inclusive environment in which together we make one another stronger. We are grateful for our community, their involvement, and their advocacy for their faith, and we pray that we all seek God's wisdom and grace in how we treat each other and live each day in accordance to His will." - Head of School Sister Cecilia Dwyer, OSB, SGHS Class of 1963 ...

Thank you for providing the students this very valuable opportunity. I am sorry the post had to be removed. I too was angered at the thoughtless, hateful and sophomoric comments that were posted.

It's a shame you had to take it down. It is so important for the girls to be able to learn what our state government does and how it's run.

So sorry there was an issue was a good opportunity for the girls

Thank you! The unnecessary political outrage was ridiculous!

Sad to see!

Thank you for this very beautiful post. I truly believe the experience is valuable for students in forming right judgement and allowing the Holy Spirit to make known God's presence.

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.
