Committed to cultivating curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking
Saint Gertrude’s academic program has a long tradition of educating all girls in a nurturing environment that far exceeds the traditional classroom combining high expectations, expert faculty, small class sizes, and Catholic values so that young women can reach their full potential. At SGHS, we seek to foster intellectual curiosity, hard work, leadership, and academic excellence while cultivating confidence, creativity, and maturity in young women.
Our extensive course offerings provide many challenging and interesting options, including 18 honors and 15 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 15 ensures an interactive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels cared for and heard.
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.
A Saint Gertrude Graduate
Most importantly, our graduates leave Saint Gertrude with confidence in themselves and a love for each other. 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.
