MISSION

Founded by the Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross, our Holy Cross mission is the foundation from which we educate the mind and empower the heart of every Gilmour student. Beyond the classroom, students are provided countless opportunities to engage in our mission through service, including trips across the US and, for the past 18 years, trips to Honduras. Upper School students must accrue 60 hours of service and reflect upon their experience in light of our mission before they graduate, but the overwhelming majority of graduating seniors far exceed that number and the mission moves beyond a written reflection to a lived reality.

Born out of our Holy Cross commitment to educate the whole child, Gilmour's Wellness program is integrated into all aspects of the Gilmour experience to enhance each student’s physical, psychological, spiritual and social well-being. Whether through counseling, education, nutrition, spiritual guidance or physical activities such as weight training or yoga, Gilmour has designed a host of offerings to keep students happy and healthy as they grow and achieve to their highest potential.

CAMPUS LIFE

Gilmour offers many opportunities for students to discover and express their unique voices. Along with our diverse courses and extracurricular opportunities in vocal music, drama, speech and debate, theater and band, Gilmour is proud to be in partnership with the Cleveland International Piano Competition, designated a Steinway Select School, and home to the Encore Chamber Music Festival and Institute. We will continue to expand partnerships with community arts organizations to provide workshops, masterclasses and performance opportunities with real world professionals. We are thrilled to raise the curtain on the new hub for our arts programming - The Lorraine and Bill Dodero Center for the Performing Arts.

SIGNATURE PROGRAMS

Our state-of-the-art facilities and curricula are at the vanguard of technology education. Students have the opportunity to take programming, robotics, digital media, web design and app development, and 2D and 3D game design. They have access to Gilmour’s cutting-edge Fab Lab, where they can work with industrystandard laser cutters, mills and 3D printers to build whatever the mind can imagine.

Our new campuswide program has turned our 144-acre campus into a learning laboratory featuring a greenhouse; forest, field and pond habitats; an apiary; a chicken coop; and multiple gardens. Together with sustainability initiatives across all divisions and new course offerings in environmental science, the facilities and programming serve to foster a deep sense of environmental appreciation, consciousness and social responsibility.

From the very beginning of a student’s journey at Gilmour, opportunities are presented outside of the traditional classroom. We offer multiple-day interdisciplinary experiences at the Lower School; hands-on learning opportunities in our chicken coops, greenhouse, apiary or robotics lab; and the annual favorite - the Middle School Boat Float in our pool. Additionally, students can participate in out-of-state immersion trips for all divisions and out-of-country immersion trips for our Upper School students; off-campus experiential fieldtrips; the multi-year VECTOR program for those interested in pursuing a specific career field; semester-long internships; or summer programs sourced by our full-time Coordinator of Learning Enhancement. Gilmour students are provided authentic, practical experiences. As such, our students develop critical problem-solving skills applicable in the real world, and our Upper School students leave with a highly developed professional network and a well-rounded portfolio of relevant work experience enabling them to stand out from their peers.

Lower School students also have the opportunity to take swimming and skating lessons right on campus! At the Middle and Upper School levels, 91% of students participate in our athletics program, which consists of 24 varsity teams, two prep hockey teams (including the only girls prep hockey team in the state of Ohio) and 26 junior varsity, freshman and Middle School teams. Many of our varsity teams are routinely state contenders.

How lucky I am to have the opportunity to welcome you to Gilmour – a place that is as much a part of me as any other part of my life. While I began in my role as Head of School in 2015, my journey at Gilmour began in 1978.

SCHEDULE A VISIT TODAY!

Over the years, I have served in a variety of capacities at Gilmour – as a classroom teacher, an administrator, a member of the institutional development team, and, perhaps, most importantly, as a Gilmour parent. I understand all that goes into choosing a school for your child and I know that it is not a decision that is made lightly. I assure you that sending your child to Gilmour will be among the best decisions you ever make.

Go to gilmour.org/admission or call 440 | 473 | 8050.

The Congregation of Holy Cross founded Gilmour in 1946 and the Holy Cross brothers and priests, as well as the lay people with whom I work, model the core values upon which the school was founded and ensure that the Holy Cross mission is at the core of all that we do. Their passion for their students and the school we all love inspires me each day. I hope you enjoy getting to know Gilmour. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions or be of any assistance to your family during the admission process. May God bless you and all you love,
