You all are doing a great job! 💚💚

Today, we want to take a moment to thank all of those (not just in the SGHS community) that are on the frontlines of the healthcare response around the world. 🏥 As a small token of our gratitude, we will give a restaurant gift card to one of these incredible individuals to ease the burden of grocery shopping/cooking. Comment below with a word of thanks tagging that person (bonus if it includes a photo 📷), and you will also be entered to win a gift card to our Gator Shop. And, as always, please join us in keeping them in your thoughts and prayers. 🙏💚 #inthistogether ... See MoreSee Less

And... feel free to comment if you are one of these hardworking, dedicated individuals working on the frontlines. We know there are so many of you all in our community and would love to show you our gratitude as well. <3

Sadie Smith our Athletic Trainer! We are so proud of your efforts at VCU hospital screening patients!

Thank you to our very own Heather DuHamel Sams SGHS School Nurse for taking care of all the girls, faculty and staff. Though we are not all together, she still sends us updates on staying healthy.

A huge shout out to 2 of the best nurses I know. Keegan Miller who is an ICU Nurse on the front lines and Sharon Savine White surgical nurse now in the trenches. Both at local hospitals.

My husband, Jonathan, who is with Henrico fire department

Thank you to Lexie Stavac...class of Red and White (nursing student fighting the front lines at Chippenham ED) finishes school in 5 weeks and has been thrown into the fire without batting an eyelash and ready to serve!!! Stay safe to all the front line people fighting this new war!! ❤️

Thanks to Erin Gervasoni the best occupational health nurse working around the clock!

From this long-time Catholic educator: thanks, SGHS, for all you’re doing for all our students. Stay well. 🙏

And this is exactly why we LOVE Saint Gertrude High School. We are #GATORstrong🐊

Appreciate all you’ve done to make this easy on our girls! Maintaining friendships and class virtually has been great!

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.
