About this school

As a parent, you seek a school that will nurture your child as a lifelong learner who is academically prepared for high school math, science, history, social studies, language arts and foreign languages. You want your child to excel academically, communicate clearly, use technology effectively, appreciate the visual and performing arts, and participate in sports and community service programs. Above all, you want your child to be a moral, principled individual who is respectful of all people and sensitive to the needs of others. At the Academy, our aim is to help your child achieve these goals. An Academy education is defined by excellent academics and strong moral growth within a nurturing community. An Academy education builds strong character and produces students who respect others and are filled with the confidence to meet and conquer life's many challenges. An Academy education builds within each child a high moral standard to help him or her make ethical judgments and decisions throughout life. We invite you to be a part of a community that is defined by respect for others. A Grosse Pointe Academy education will be a rewarding experience that will provide an advantage for a lifetime.
