Welcome from the Head of School

adams_tommy_300pxThank you for visiting The Grosse Pointe Academy web site. I hope you find this site informative and helpful in introducing you to our outstanding program offerings.

The Grosse Pointe Academy, located in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, is an independent day school enrolling boys and girls in a Montessori Early School (ages 2 1/2-5), a Lower School (Grades 1-3), an Intermediate School (Grades 4-5), and a Middle School (Grades 6-8).

As an independent school, The Grosse Pointe Academy prides itself on a warm and nurturing environment where each child is known and respected. We understand the sacred trust parents place in us. Our students receive the advantage of outstanding academics, an emphasis on moral and spiritual development through a Christian way of life, a wide range of extracurricular activities that challenge the mind and the body – from chess to interscholastic athletics. All of this takes place on a beautiful 20-acre lakeside campus of unparalleled beauty.

We provide the academic environment that helps our students develop the skills to become resourceful and creative learners. Integral to our “whole child” approach to education is our emphasis on character development through leadership and community service opportunities. Our goal is to encourage lifelong learning and good citizenship in our students.

Please browse this site and discover the Academy advantage. Better still, visit our school and experience what it would be like for your family to be part of our school community.
