We are extremely proud of all that we have to offer our students and families. It is our privilege to work with parents in helping their children grow academically, spiritually, and socially.

Ms. Lucy Gintz, Principal


About Ms. Gintz-I began my career teaching second grade at St. Raphael the Archangel and even here at SGM for many years. I have also served as Assistant Principal and CRE at St. Gabriel the Archangel. I have been the Assistant Principal and Preschool Director for the past six years at SGM and now I begin my 20th year in Catholic education as St. Gerard Majella's Principal. I am a product of Catholic Education (Our Lady of Good Counsel, Rosati-Kain, Fontbonne University, SLU)  and I strongly believe in it.  I love being able to incorporate the love of Jesus and our Catholic faith into every part of the school day. I know the sacrifices you make to send your children to Catholic schools, so thank you for all your time, dedication, and support you give to us each day. My goal at St. Gerard Majella is to work together with the parents, faculty, and parish community to provide the best possible academic and faith formation experience for the students at our school.
