Saint Gertrude High School

Yesterday, Honors Ensemble performed at VCU's Children's Hospital as part of recreation therapy for some of the children who live at the hospital. The group sang such songs as "Build Me Up Buttercup," "Count On Me," "Johnny Said No," and "Let It Go," but the highlight for the kids was definitely the Disney medley at the end. Two Saint Gertrude alumnae and VCU CH staffers were on hand -- Kathy Becker Bailey '83, recreation therapist, and Amy Gott Taylor '87, nurse. Here are some photos from the visit. ...

Saint Gertrude High School

We told you we would get those seniors back! We moved all their Slounge furniture (aka senior lounge) into the Hub, stuffed balloons in their cars, made signs, taped up their lockers, and even Rickrolled five times on the loudspeaker (look it up!). Haha! ... See MoreSee Less

The Saint Gertrude Advantage


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.


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.


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.
