Gilmour Academy's technology initiative, LancerTech, is our campus-wide effort to empower our students and faculty. We're determined to make our STEM opportunities second-to-none and to keep our classrooms equipped with the lastest, most engaging tools available.

ONE-TO-ONE

While many lessons are best served without the use of an Internet-connected device, we understand how to leverage personal computers to provide impactful instruction. We make sure all our teachers have ready access to a one-to-one ratio between students and devices if their lesson calls for it. We provide iPads (grades 1-2) and laptops (grades 3-6) to students in the Lower School. Middle and Upper School students bring their own devices to class. Faculty are provided a Mac or PC of their choice as well as personal training sessions so they're comfortable applying their content expertise over new mediums.

COMPUTER SCIENCE COURSES

4th-8th Grade Robotics

Students learn programming fundamentals through our LEGO Robotics program that starts in the fourth grade. Every year the classes solve the challenges offered by the FIRST LEGO League. Our students gain a maker's mindset, understand software components, and are prepared for our Upper School's competitive robotics team.

Computer Science Courses

Gilmour Academy offers some of the most advanced Computer Science opportunities found in any high school. All our students produce professional-caliber products. We're building VR games, agile robots, websites for local businesses, web apps, 3D-printed inventions and tons more. Our curriculum is being regularly updated and expanded, too.

Digital Media & Others

Outside of the Computer Science Department, Gilmour offers a variety of high-tech classes in music production and new media journalism. Across all departments, instructors have worked with our technology specialists to include novel and impactful implmentations of educational technology in their classes.

OUR APPS

Solving technology problems around our school, our faculty have been developing tools to improve instruction. We build all sorts of helpful day-to-day scripts to make data management easier, but these are the apps we're building for public use.

Flaskinni is a starting point for app developers. It's a collection of open source tools with a helpful guide. Our students in Web Dev use this toolkit to get their prototypes online quickly.

Glave.io is a solution for schools' experiential learning programs. We're making it easy for students to keep track of their progress as they submit log entries, communicate with mentors, and build a portfolio.

STUDENT TECH STARTUPS

Gilmour Academy students launch new businesses every year. Not only do we help with the software or product at the heart of their businesses, but our faculty also helps students obtain seed capital, register their businesses, apply for patents, file for legal status, and evaluate their insurance needs. While many products will never make it to a point where they're publicly accessible. That's okay! It's a big challenge but it's a wildly educational and exciting one.

Featured Student Startup

ROBOTICS AT GILMOUR

Gilmour Academy competes in many levels of FIRST. But our flagship team is the Moonshots. This team competes in the most difficult, most competitive high school robotics challenge. Every year we explore new methods and increasingly sophisticated technologies we can implement on our robot. Students are involved at all levels, including fundraising, marketing, programming, design, and hardware fabrication.

HIGH-TECH CAMPUS

Tech Support

We're fortunate to have a great Technology office to support our BYOD program, our network, and classroom tech.

Raspberry Pi Bakeoff

Every semester we have a contest where students submit inventions using a Raspberry Pi computer.

Gilmour Lance

We're all very proud of our student newspaper, the Gilmour Lance, a site built and maintained by our students.

Senior Project

All seniors are given time to engage with a signficant experience or project. This gives our students opportunities to explore fields or commit to ambitious builds.
