College Counseling

About Colleges

Gilman boys and their families have the advantage of a strong College Counseling Office staffed with four full-time counselors to guide them through the college application process. What is unique at Gilman is that each of our counselors teaches one class and also coaches, an interpretation of our time-honored teacher-coach-advisor model. Throughout a boy's years in the Upper School, our college counselors aim to nurture and expand their relationship with both him and his parents. Our counselors seek to serve students as teachers and advisors as they navigate the ever-changing landscape of college admission.

All research shows that undergraduate success is the result of a demanding high school curriculum with abundant opportunities to research, analyze and write. We are committed to the ideal of making lifelong learners of our boys, and, as such, Gilman graduates become successful undergraduates.

Gilman's CEEB code is #210-095. Review our School Profile.
