Wellness is a journey and we aspire for individuals within the Gilmour community to reach their fullest potential to be healthy and thrive. Gilmour honors the unique journey of each person and is committed to creating an environment for raising awareness and creating dialogue around social-emotional, physical, spiritual, and academic well-being. We understand that our community and environments influence individual health, and as such, the Academy has embraced an ecological approach in considering and addressing wellness that are community-based as well as individually focused. We seek not only to transform individual choices and behaviors, but also to transform our culture and environment so that it may empower individuals to make healthier decisions and support them in their pursuit of a balanced lifestyle.
As members of the Holy Cross community, we are dedicated to the education of the whole child and recognize the importance of cultivating healthy habits at an early age in order to lay the foundation for a lifetime of holistic wellness. Gilmour’s Wellness Initiative is rooted in the belief that learning emerges best in the context of supportive, trusting relationships that make learning challenging, engaging and meaningful, and as such, the initiative is designed to engage not only our students and their families, but also our faculty and staff, as well as the larger community.
