St. Gertrude School, in Madeira, is a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Since its founding in 1934, the school has been led by the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia and offers academic excellence in the Dominican tradition: preaching truth, practicing virtue, and loving one another in Christ.
Our community of friars, sisters, parents, teachers, coaches, and parishioners work together to educate our children so that they will become independent thinkers, rooted deeply in faith and love.
We are blessed to have faculty and staff that are highly-skilled, generous, and dedicated to preparing our students to succeed.
