Strategic Plan


Since its inception, Gilman School has been defined by its offering of rigorous and balanced academic, artistic, and athletic programs; a nurturing and supportive environment that celebrates and understands boys; outstanding and dedicated teachers; and bright and talented students. The School's time-honored mission of educating boys in mind, body, and spirit is our true north and will forever remain so.

Since 2019, our bold Strategic Plan has guided our work toward ensuring that the very best program, people, and resources are aligned in order to deliver an exceptional Gilman experience.
