The Power of One

As Gill St. Bernard's annual day of giving, Founders' Day is an opportunity for parents, alumni, students, faculty and staff, and friends to come together as one to show our school pride and support our community's future.

One act can make a difference. One gesture can create true impact. One person can change the future.

Why is Founders' Day Important?

Founders’ Day is a celebration of our community and our storied history, promoting a deep sense of pride. It is a day to celebrate who we are as a school and all that we find here at Gill.

Rev. Conover and Miss Gill believed in the value of the individual, a rich school experience, and preparing every student for a meaningful life beyond the classroom. Their legacy lives on through each member of our community.

50 Years of Tremendous Growth

In 1972, two schools demonstrated the power of uniting for a common cause. 
As Gill St. Bernard's continues its year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of our school merger, we are honored for the opportunity to further the legacy of our founders, Rev. Thomas A. Conover of the St. Bernard's School, and Miss Elizabeth Gill of the Gill School.
