In a dormitory setting designed to mimic a university environment — but with the additional staffing, support services and structure to guide residents — Gilmour’s residential life program develops habits and skills for success in college and beyond.  

Students from around the world are drawn to Gilmour Academy's residence life program for its robust international community, the school's nationally recognized hockey program and the rigorous academics. Our boarding students easily assimilate into the larger Gilmour community and participate in everything from the golf team to the Psychology Club to the speech and debate team. Whether you join the Gilmour family from another state or another country, you will be part of an incredible community - a true home away from home.

DAILY LIFE
School Days:  After their regular school day and participation in after-school activites, residential students keep up with their studies during mandatory supervised study hall in the evenings.

Weekends: Residential students participate in a number of on- and off-campus athletic, extracurricular, academic, cultural or recreational activities, with plenty of unstructured time for balance.  Sunday evenings the entire hall gathers for prayer service, reflection and team-building, while special trips and holiday celebrations occur throughout the year.
