Why Gilmour?

Loading Content...

Gilmour provides a positive learning environment

Gilmour teachers personalize their instruction and strive to understand their students' abilities.  Faculty members get to know their students and advocate for their success.  Students are challenged to realize their full potential, but are also supported as they encounter challenges so that they become confident, independent learners.

Gilmour nurtures a child's faith development

Religious instruction at Gilmour stretches students' understanding and thinking about important issues as their faith grows and deepens.  Gilmour’s programs are tied to its Holy Cross values and lead toward being in relationship with others. Our activities are grounded in outcomes that matter:  learning, appreciation and service.  Respectful, inclusive faith development is integral to how Gilmour teaches the whole child.

Gilmour teaches girls and boys

At Gilmour Academy, diversity begins at the most basic level:  coeducation.  Boys and girls learn together and grow together into successful, respectful young men and women.  They learn how to collaborate, play and interact with the opposite sex.  Students come to understand the challenges of diversity and how to negotiate and appreciate their peers.  They learn to support each other and celebrate each other's achievements.  When students leave Gilmour, they are prepared with interpersonal skills that will serve them well in our multicultural world.

Gilmour fosters caring relationships

Gilmour is more than a school:  it's a community of closely connected individuals.  Some students start at the Lower School together and graduate together 12 years later.  Many come to Gilmour as freshmen.  Regardless of when they first arrive on campus, students connect through retreats, activities, sports and academic interests.  The Gilmour Community extends beyond graduation day.  Many alumni have gained lifelong friends during their time at Gilmour.  They reconnect their friendships on campus by staying involved with the Alumni Association events.
