Student Life at Saint Gertrude
The Benedictine Schools of Richmond
With a view toward their history and a desire to strengthen Catholic education, Benedictine College Preparatory and Saint Gertrude High School unified under a single new corporation, The Benedictine Schools of Richmond, in January 2020.
Clubs and Organizations
We offer a wide range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities to meet the needs of all students and to provide an opportunity to develop leadership skills and self confidence.
A 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.
We incorporate a skill-building program in which our students can discover the roles and styles of leadership that work for them, and learn to put these lessons to work in everything they take on.
Our athletic program boasts 12 sports and 21 teams. The primary campus houses a gymnasium, exercise and training rooms, and an onsite VCU Sports Medicine athletic trainer. Our state-of-the-art Outdoor Athletic Center is a 16-acre complex with a turf field, grass field, softball field, six tennis courts, field house, and walking path.
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.
A 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 facility is being built for Saint Gertrude.
