Complete and submit the online application (along with all other required checklist items) by the January 15, 2021 deadline for earliest consideration.
IN-PERSON FAMILY CAMPUS TOUR OR VIRTUAL PARENT MEETING (required)
Schedule a family campus tour with Admission, via your child's checklist (see our Visit page for scheduling details). We ask Lower School families to complete the application form prior to your tour.
These single-family tours will take place on campus on select weekdays and weekends from October through December.
TESTING (required for students applying for Grades 5-12)
Applicants for Grades 5-12 must submit standardized test results. In order to qualify for a Merit Award, you must take the ISEE, which Gilmour administers on its campus monthly. New students applying for Grades 7 and 9 will be considered for merit-based awards. To register, visit iseetest.org or call (800) 446-0320; indicate you would like your scores sent to Gilmour (school code 362270).
Gilmour also accepts the SSAT. The PSAT is acceptable for Grade 11 applicants; the SAT or ACT is required for Grade 12 applicants. The TOEFL is required for international students.
