Beyond getting acquainted with our parklike campus, inviting classrooms and modern athletic facilities, a visit to our campus is the best way to get a feel for the energy and community that is Gilmour.
Here, we recognize that our students are more than just scholars; they’re also artists and athletes, engineers and poets, daughters and sons and friends. And because we’re the only day and residential prep school in the state that’s also independent, coed and Catholic, you can’t get the Gilmour experience anywhere else in Ohio.
 
During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and interact with our faculty, staff and current students, ask questions and even get a taste of our gourmet food service program for an authentic view of what Gilmour is really like from your perspective.
 
One-on-one tours for both parents and students are available during the school week, plus immersive classroom visits for students of all ages who want more.
 
You’ll find additional details on how to plan your visit below. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a tour, we’re just a call or email away. We can’t wait to learn more about you and discover all the ways in which your passions and talents can flourish at Gilmour.
