Affording Gilman

Increasing Access and Affordability

Choosing an independent school for your son's education is a thoughtful family decision, and we know that sending your son to Gilman requires a significant financial investment. We are committed to providing families with as much information as possible in order to assist with this decision.

Gilman actively seeks young men of promise who we know will contribute greatly to our vibrant community. To identify, retain, and recognize such extraordinary talent, Gilman funds excellence by providing need-based tuition assistance to ensure students benefit from a Gilman education and thrive beyond our campus.

Today, the money for Gilman's tuition assistance program is generated by endowed funds, special gifts to the School, and The Gilman Fund, the School's annual giving effort. Now, through the generosity of many benefactors, Gilman provides assistance to more than 25 percent of the student body in all three divisions.
