Students are at the center of all that Gilmour Academy does to nurture the heart, to educate the mind, and to promote personal leadership toward making our world more humane and just. This is the cornerstone of our mission. Our students thrive intellectually and spiritually within a context of the Catholic school tradition lived and shaped by the Congregation of Holy Cross for more than 150 years.
Gilmour Academy opened its doors more than six decades ago to young minds seeking a rigorous college-preparatory school education. We continue today to instill the desire for excellence in academic mastery and moral character that prepares our students to succeed in college and in life, while laying a foundation of justice and compassion toward others.
Our students are instructed by well-qualified faculty who are purposeful in their efforts to guide young men and women to excellence and success. They learn in facilities that support a curriculum for our 21st century, and in an environment that cultivates their artistic and athletic talents, and fosters moral leadership with a commitment to serving others.
To develop the competence to see and the courage to act in creating a more humane and just society.
Everything about Gilmour is driven by the Holy Cross mission to translate moral beliefs into practice – from our college preparatory academic program and extracurricular activities, to our day and boarding programs, our facilities and endowment, and especially our status as an independent coeducational Catholic school.
Our mission manifests itself across our campus:
-In our faculty, who educate our students in a research-based curriculum which engages life learning.
-In an academic setting , where young men and women shape themselves into people who are effective communicators, complex thinkers, effective problem-solvers, collaborative contributors, lifelong learners, and morally responsible persons.
-In creating a culture, of empathy and compassion for others through community service.
-In teaching values, proactively in the critical years of boys’ and girls’ development that embraces all people, cultures, and faiths through programs that help them understand and accept the many ways we are different and to recognize the ways we are alike.
Our mission sustains the excellent private coeducation Gilmour Academy is able to offer and provides the foundation for the critical thinking, moral formation, and independent leadership we seek to inspire in our students.
