Gilmour Academy Middle School students are offered every opportunity to take ownership of their education and achieve beyond expectations. We call this the Middle School Jumpstart. By enrolling early in Upper School-level courses in math, science, language and fine arts, motivated students can enter high school an average of two grade levels above their peers, leaving more room to explore passions and earn college credits before graduation.

This helpful course trajectory provides a side-by-side comparison of standard grade-level courses (first row of each subject) with the Middle School Jumpstart track (bottom row of each subject). We work with students and their parents, teachers, advisors and counselors to customize courses according to abilities and interests.
