Save the date! We’re excited to announce that we are participating in the third annual #iGiveCatholic campaign, our nation’s Catholic day of giving, on #GivingTuesday (November 30)!

While this is not our school’s dedicated annual giving day, we hope you will join us in our efforts to make this a fantastic day of Catholic giving in our community and across the nation!

Your generous support to our annual fund makes a meaningful difference to enrich the educational experience of every Saint Gertrude student. A gift today will help us unleash our potential and be an unstoppable force in the Richmond area.

Thank you, Benedictine Sisters of Virginia , for celebrating the feast day of Saint Gertrude with us!

Posted @withregram • @osbbristowva Yesterday, Sisters Joanna, Charlotte Lange, Cecilia and Mary got to go to "The Feast" at our @saintgertrudeva in Richmond. Every year near the feast day of their patron, St. Gertrude the Great, SGHS has a huge celebration. We begin with a prayer service that includes both Sister and SGHS senior reflections. Sister Joanna spoke about the relatively hidden life of St. Gertrude, who by worldly standards didn't do much, but whose mystical life shared the love of God that has encouraged and impacted many since her 13th century. Sister Joanna challenged the students to also cultivate and share and be the love of God with those inside and outside of the SGHS community. Senior Sydney followed with a passionate talk on how SGHS has been a huge influence on her life, giving beautiful personal examples throughout her 4 years. After the prayer service, it was time to get the party started with treats and dancing. Lana and Alaina presented us with a cake they made featuring St. Gertrude (which our Sisters were thrilled to sample that evening!) All too soon, it was time for the students to go to class...we tried to get them a free day! Before we left, Mr. Grapes gave us a tour of the progress of the new SGHS building which is absolutely stunning. Our deep gratitude to Mrs. Riley and all the students, faculty and staff who rolled out perfect Benedictine hospitality! How we wish we could be with you every day! #saintgertrudehighschool #classoforangeandwhite #thefeast #stgertrudethegreat #prayerservice #benedictinesistersofvirginia #richmondva #rva #sghs #crazygoodhospitality

Not sure who was more excited to see the other yesterday - the Sisters seeing the girls or the girls seeing the Sisters!

The Saint Gertrude Advantage

ALL GIRL

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.

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

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 facility 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.
