We can't wait to meet you!

We look forward to learning more about you and showing you our beautiful 144-acre campus! Gilmour administrators and faculty have worked tirelessly to ensure that our community could again return safely to campus. We will continue in-person tours and, this year, return to a modified shadow experience for students in Grades 7-12. We will be hosting our Open Houses and Middle/Upper School Parent Coffees as well and encourage anyone interested in Gilmour to visit our Virtual Visit page. All visitors will be required to wear a mask while indoors on campus and are asked to remain socially distanced to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe.
