Saint Gertrude High School

What a beautiful story about the process for the Bruce family and their Catholic education journey. Rachel, we are so proud to be a part of your family's faith life!! 🐊💚🙏”Saint Benedict Catholic School was a life-changer for our family...literally!

Chase and his sister, Rachel, were homeschooled. In fifth grade, Chase became restless as it was becoming evident that he wanted to attend a traditional school and thus began our search for the perfect school.

To facilitate the transition, we felt smaller classes would be a better fit but most importantly, we were in search of a Christ-centered school that would share and teach our same values. A friend suggested we consider Saint Benedict.

Chase enrolled in sixth grade, and as we had been using a classical approach in our homeschooling, the transition was smooth.

What I will always remember about that year and the years that followed were his enthusiasm in attending school and the dinner conversations that centered around what Chased learned at school that day.

As a Protestant family, we were especially intrigued with what he was learning in Mr. Cronheim's Religion class. Chase had such a good year his first year that Rachel decided that she wanted to leave homeschooling to attend Saint Gertrude where she enrolled the following year.

This past Easter, Rachel was baptized and confirmed and I converted from the Baptist to Catholic faith, culminating a spiritual journey that started around the dinner table three years ago.

As Chase enters Benedictine in the fall, we are confident that his education at Saint Benedict provided a strong foundation for success in the years to come!” - Beverly Bruce, Parent of a SBCS graduate.

Saint Gertrude High School

Celebrating the women of the USWNT and Catholic school education!Once upon a time, this little girl dressed up as her hero, Mia Hamm, for a book sharing project.
Today, this amazing woman won her own gold medal, wearing the number 16, as part of the United States National Women’s Team that won their 4th World Cup Championship AND she won the Bronze Ball as the third best player in the tournament! Now, little girls everywhere look up to her, and will be working hard to become like Rose.
Here’s to you, Rose Lavelle, and the entire Lavelle Family. The St. Vincent Ferrer School and Church Community are so proud of you!

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.
