Learn More About Gilman

Why Gilman?

Boys have very specific educational and developmental needs, and Gilman has spent more than 100 years tailoring age-appropriate learning experiences to meet those needs.


Our curriculum hones in on how boys think, observe, and relate to each other on their way to becoming honorable, curious, humble, respectful, and resourceful young leaders.


At Gilman, athletics teach pride, humility, leadership, self-discipline, sportsmanship, and teamwork, and boys learn skills around wellness, fitness, and physical and mental well-being.

Community, Inclusion, and Equity

Our CIE work encourages vibrant exchange and courageous conversations.

Why a Boys' School?

Gilman makes the intentional choice to focus on the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional lives of boys and young men.

College Counseling

We are committed to the ideal of making lifelong learners of our boys, and, as such, Gilman graduates become successful undergraduates.


Learn how Gilman boys can express themselves through any or every artistic medium.

Health, Wellness, and Support

At Gilman, we strive to support the mind, body, and spirit of every boy.
