The Gilman Study
What is The Study?
The Gilman Study serves as a designated space for unique learning opportunities. With nearly 4,000 square feet of space on Parish’s Midway campus, The Study is a hub for professional growth and personal development programming for our parents, students, alumni and educators. Designed to complement Parish’s core academic and signature programs, The Study is a place where people can hone new skills, explore new topics or areas of interest, and have real-time access to the help they need. The Study’s personalized learning experiences are designed to help both students and adult learners thrive.
Why was The Study created?
The Study represents a natural evolution in Parish’s innovative thinking to promote learning experiences that feature high student engagement and facilitate the love of learning amongst people both within and beyond the Parish community. The Study provides a space for people to both grow their talents and pursue new knowledge and skills.
What programs will The Study host?
The Study will house the existing programs of Parish Lab and Parish Link. The Study will also offer programs to learners of all ages on a wide range of topics, such as:
- Personal growth and wellness
- Leadership and strengths-based coaching
- Academic topics (i.e. financial literacy and cyber security)
- Arts programming (i.e. photography)
- Opportunities for people to pursue certificates and credentialing in a wide variety of areas
Parish Lab is a resource for 3rd through 12th grade students to develop mindsets, learning styles, strengths, and practice study skills through application and exploration. Learn more.
At Parish, we appreciate that students learn differently and, at times may require an additional academic resource to help with the process. Parish Link assists families by connecting parents and students to qualified fully screened academic coaches. Learn more.
This is an invitation-only class designed to help select 3rd-6th grade students diagnosed with a specific learning difference in reading. The course is held in small groups which allow a highly personalized curriculum designed to best address the specific learning differences of each participant. The goal of this class is to give students a stronger foundation in the English language, specifically reading, spelling, vocabulary, and written expression skills, before moving on to study other world languages in the second half of middle school.This course is taught by a CALT (Certified Academic Language Therapist) and it is an evidence-based, multisensory, structured literacy program that provides specialized instruction for dyslexia remediation.
