A Saint Gertrude Education

A Saint Gertrude Education Cultivates Curiosity, Creativity, and Critical Thinking

Our commitment to our Catholic faith imbues our entire school culture, whether in the classroom, on the field, on stage, or in the hallways. And our curriculum supports that commitment as it is designed to develop a uniquely feminine spirituality based on openness to life and a deep confidence in God's loving care.

Challenging Academics

Our extensive course offerings provide many challenging and interesting options, including 32 honors and AP courses. Saint Gertrude teachers are passionate about their subjects and are generous with their time in and out of the classroom. An average class size of 17 ensures an interactive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels cared for and heard.

Prepared for College

An engaging college preparatory program prepares our students for admission into a wide variety of colleges and universities. Last year’s graduates were collectively accepted into 150 different colleges and universities and were offered nearly $3 million in scholarship money. Each year, Saint Gertrude graduates are recognized nationally for their superior academic, leadership, and athletic achievements. Our graduates consistently earn top honors and gain admissions into top Ivy League colleges and universities; however, our college counseling office focuses on finding the right fit for each of our graduates.

Most importantly, our graduates leave Saint Gertrude with confidence in themselves and a love for their community. All that makes Saint Gertrude special centers around the sisterhood that is established in and out of the classroom and is something that grows well into the future.

“SGHS has taught me how to advocate for myself and how to openly communicate my faith and it has given me a space to freely express it. My experiences have helped me to persevere through adversity - academically or socially - and to communicate with those around me. It has taught me to not procrastinate and to prioritize what is good.”
