Home > Academics


Rooted in the Salesian tradition and the Philosophy of Don Bosco (Home, School, Church and Playground), the St. Gertrude the Great faculty and staff are committed to educating the whole person by providing an environment where students achieve their highest potential intellectually, socially and spiritually. Teachers encourage students to become more aware of their potential and to become lifelong learners with the capacity to be successful in a rapidly changing world. As a Catholic elementary school, we seek to empower students to examine their possibilities during their early school years and to set personal and academic goals that will lead to success. Our vision is to enhance the lives of our students and assist them in making important, realistic decisions about academic, high school and college goals.
