November 2017


From Roland Avenue

In the last few months I have had the pleasure of corresponding with dozens of Gilman alumni from near and far – from Baltimore to Boston, London to Los Angeles. One question has cropped up over and over: "How can I stay connected to the school from far away?" There are lots of ways to get involved! Even if you're not in Baltimore, you can still follow the school on social media, host an alumni gathering in your area, or offer to mentor a fellow alum. Click here to learn more.

Read the Baltimore Sun story here. The game was live streamed by Greyhound TV so you can watch it hereThe victory propelled Gilman to a second seed in the MIAA playoffs, which they opened on Sunday with an impressive 42-24 win over third-seeded Calvert Hall.

Volleyball Champions

Not to be outdone, the Gilman Varsity Volleyball team took the court at St. Paul's on the same day to line up against Mount St. Joseph. The VolleyHounds streaked ahead 2-0 before Mt. St. Joe's Gaels rallied for a third game win. The Hounds quickly recovered by winning the fourth game and claiming the title with a 3-1 match victory. This the Hounds' fourth MIAA Championship in the past five years. Read about it and watch the video here.


Alumni Receptions

Gilman alumni gathered at the Penn Club in New York City to hear about the School's latest news and at Ryan's Daughter in Baltimore for the annual Gilman-McDonogh happy hour.


25 Years of Mentorship

An important way that Gilman fosters community and strengthens ties between divisions is through our mentorship program. Launched in 1992, this program pairs an older student with a younger student for guidance and support. Learn more about this program, which fosters lifelong friendships between alumni of all ages.
