Such a wonderful tradition!! Many good memories associated with Sponsor's Day!! 🥰

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.


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.
