Gilmour's 144-acre (0.58 km2) campus has experienced significant growth and expansion in recent years. The Lynn and Michael Kelley Middle School and Fine Arts Building houses a Broadcast Media Center where students can learn and practice with digital media technology. A new performing arts building will be completed in early 2020. The chapel serves as a venue for liturgical events and student convocation. Gilmour's Athletic Center houses two NHL-sized ice rinks and a fitness center. New artificial turf was installed in 2004 in a multiple-use field for football, soccer, and lacrosse. In 1989 a new gymnasium and aquatic center complete with new locker rooms were completed.
Gilmour Academy was founded in 1946 when a group of Brothers of Holy Cross from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana began a select boarding school which was named in honor of Bishop Richard Gilmour, the second Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland and a champion of Catholic education. The school opened in 1946 with a faculty of nine Brothers and an initial enrollment of 45 eighth and ninth grade boys. The following year, the school shifted to a four-year curriculum. Gilmour added its middle school in 1973. In 1982, Gilmour merged with Glen Oak School, making it a coeducational institution. The Lower School and Montessori preschool program were established in 1995. In the fall of 2013, the Montessori program was expanded to include students 18-months to age 9.
