Saint Gertrude High School, a Catholic school for young women and a ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia, provides a strong, college-preparatory education that respects and embraces diversity.
Building on our tradition of excellence, we offer students the opportunity to develop critical thinking, leadership potential, creative expression and reflective faith.
We work to develop the whole student by stimulating pursuit of intellectual excellence, physical well being, expressive creativity and spiritual discovery.
We expect high moral character as exhibited in the way we show respect for ourselves and others.
We create a nurturing and inclusive community in which together we make each other stronger.
We are good stewards of the resources that are entrusted to us in an effort to provide opportunities to as many young women as possible regardless of economic situation.
