Student Life at Saint Gertrude
Richmond is our Campus
Our classrooms include the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the James River Park System, the Virginia Historical Society, houses of worship throughout the region, as well as top research and academic institutions, and museums in the Richmond-Washington, D.C. corridor.
Clubs and Organizations
We offer a wide range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities that provide an opportunity to develop leadership skills and self-confidence in all our students.
A well-rounded education should reflect and reinforce the essential relationship between God, humankind, 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 Bon Secours 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 exclusively 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.
Because we are located in the heart of historic Richmond, both the size and location of our school allow our teachers to efficiently utilize Richmond as a living, learning laboratory.
