Gilman is a diverse community dedicated to educating boys in mind, body, and spirit through particular emphasis upon academic excellence, athletic participation, and aesthetic appreciation. Gilman seeks to produce men of character and integrity who have the skills and ability to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work. 




Educating the Whole Boy

For more than a century, Gilman’s mission has remained exceedingly focused: to unlock the greatness within each boy by educating the entire boy—mind, body, and spirit. To accomplish that goal, we provide space and opportunity for crucial learning and self-expression to take place. We believe 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.


Our rich and comprehensive program, our immeasurably talented and interesting faculty and students, and our belief in the character traits embodied by the Gilman Five—Honor, Integrity, Respect, Humility, and Excellence—combine to form the foundation of an educational environment dedicated to helping boys grow into men of character.


Community, Inclusion, and Equity

Gilman’s commitment to inclusion and equity is founded on the belief that our community is strengthened by the vibrant exchange that occurs when individuals with different backgrounds and heritages share their perspectives with one another. Through the recognition and acceptance of our many differences, we learn to appreciate and respect the complexity of the world in which we live and develop essential skills that help us forge productive relationships with those around us.


We are proud of our history as a school that has, for several generations, taken the lead on matters of diversity, inclusion, and equity. More than 35% of Gilman’s student body and 22% of the School’s faculty identify as people of color. We continue to build on that legacy through our steadfast commitment to inclusivity and equity and initiatives on local, state, and national levels.
