Saint Gertrude High School

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. We are different and it’s our difference that makes us special. All that’s unique about us – our values, our traditions, our diversity, our unity of sisterhood, and so much more – form a powerful combination of advantages that help our students grow, thrive, and lead. Research continues to validate and quantify the advantages of single-sex education for girls over traditional co-educational settings. In spaces created specifically for them, girls can explore, nurture, and showcase their emerging talents and intellect, as well as their individuality. Our graduates leave with the tools and confidence they need to be successful in college and beyond…no matter where life takes them.
