The Richmond Advantage


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, DC corridor.

Did you know …

  • Because we are located in the heart of historic Richmond, both the size and location of our school allow our teachers to quickly and efficiently take our students into the city to utilize Richmond as a living, learning laboratory.
  • With our unique ties to and use of the city itself, our young women are developing a sense of confidence, safety, and mobility that will serve them well for college and beyond.
  • Our partnerships with major Richmond community resources expand every year resulting in more experiences and opportunities for your daughter.
  • Trips to places such as New York City, Washington, DC, the Grand Canyon, Haiti, Spain, France, and China, ensure that your daughter understands that she is a citizen of the world..

The Richmond advantage means …

We are a five minute walk to the world renowned VMFA and VHS, site of many of our classes. Last year, 62 classes went on walking field trips to 18 different downtown destinations.

“Saint Gertrude has given me a great education with so many opportunities in and out of the school that allow us to explore RVA and ourselves.”
