Gilmour Academy Students

Field trips take the book learning from the classroom and extend it to life lessons. Eleven 11th and 12th grade students from Gilmour Academy in Cleveland visited Cleveland City Hall and were welcomed by Mayor Frank G. Jackson. The students were accompanied by their teacher as part of their classroom discussion on city government and to discuss the topic "Rebuilding Cleveland". In addition, students enjoyed this learning opportunity with a tour of Cleveland City Hall, a photo opportunity and a question and answer session.

As an accredited independent Catholic school in Northeast Ohio, Gilmour Academy is unique in its ability to teach the whole child. Students are prepared—not just academically but also personally and spiritually—to discover the person they’re called to be. Founded in 1946 by the Brothers of Holy Cross, Gilmour empowers students of all faiths to ask tough questions, think critically and grow spiritually.
