From Gilmour Academy

As an independent and Catholic school, Gilmour is uniquely positioned to educate both the mind and the heart of every student. If there was ever a time for transformational education focused on competent, courageous leadership, hospitality and authenticity, it is now.

At Gilmour we seek to practice our Holy Cross mission to develop the competence to see and the courage to act in creating a more humane and just society. Our Holy Cross tradition emphasizes development of the whole person with a focus on a rigorous academic program complemented by a moral imperative to foster the development of faith, conscience, leadership and a commitment to giving back. Gilmour students of every age are recognized as people on a journey of faith, effective communicators, analytical and reflective thinkers, effective problem-solvers, self-directed and curious learners, collaborative team members and, most importantly, morally responsible individuals. We look forward to inspiring your student.
