Gilman's talented and dedicated faculty support each boy in developing a strong character, a lifelong love of learning, and the drive to be his best self. By graduation, Gilman men have become critical thinkers, thoughtful creators, and innovative problem-solvers who attend top-tier colleges and go on to make positive contributions through their careers and in their communities. Whether in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, or in the community, we work tirelessly to ensure each boy is known, loved, and challenged so that he has the ability and confidence necessary to make our world a better place.
While excellence is always a central focus, our goal to attain excellence is grounded in our other Gilman Five values: honor, integrity, respect, and humility. Gilman's distinctive teaching and learning experience is tailored for boys. We know boys; how they learn, how they socialize, how they grow.

THE GILMAN SKILLS
The pursuit of academic excellence at Gilman begins with our shared belief that boys experience transformative learning when they connect disciplines, people, and ideas in ways that deepen their sense of self and serve the needs of others. We believe excellent teaching and learning prepares boys for the rigors of each successive step in their academic journey and, over time, fortifies their efforts to improve the communities in which they play, work, and live.
