Equip your child to achieve their highest potential at Gilmour Academy, where we support and challenge each student along their educational, spiritual and personal journey.
As an independent, Catholic school, Gilmour Academy stands alone in its ability to prepare students who thrive. Our mission is rooted in educating the mind and empowering the heart, ensuring that every student develops to their fullest potential. From 18 months to 18 years, everything at Gilmour – from the curriculum to the academic extension programs to extracurriculars – is focused on the four enduring competencies we have determined are most important to developing students as leaders of their generation - effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving, leadership and moral responsibility. These enduring competencies are introduced in the Montessori toddler and preschool programs, then expanded upon and developed throughout the dynamic Lower, Middle and Upper Schools. Gilmour graduates emerge ready for the next step and confident in their ability to make the world a better place.
It’s the difference of being independent and Catholic.

Enduring Competencies

List of 4 items.

  • Effective Communication

    Gilmour students learn how to be eff ective communicators, continuously honing their ability to listen, as well as to speak and write creatively, informatively and persuasively to a variety of audiences across a variety of platforms.
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

    Understanding a problem is one thing. But fully embracing the challenge and finding the best solution among many possibilities is what sets Gilmour students apart from their peers. Rigorous academic programs challenge students to make deeper connections between ideas, subjects and themes. Our students learn to respect the process as much as the outcome.
  • Leadership

    Leadership comes in many forms. The cross-disciplinary coed learning environment at Gilmour fosters student interaction with peers and faculty in a manner that is consistent with the “real world” as they work together toward common goals. This experience allows students to conquer challenges and seize opportunities, giving them the confidence to positively impact the world around them.
  • Moral Responsibility

    Guided by the tenets of our Holy Cross tradition, Gilmour Academy empowers students of all faiths from an early age to ask tough questions, and to understand that they have both the talent and the responsibility to create a more humane and just world. We off er opportunities to grow spiritually, guiding students to find their sense of purpose, respond with courage and discover who they are called to be.
