Mission & Vision
The objectives of library media services and technology at The Grosse Pointe Academy are twofold. The first is to encourage a lifelong love of reading and learning. The second is to support and enrich the core curriculum while developing 21st century literacy skills with self discipline, ethics, and an intrinsic responsibility toward the greater good of the community.

Therefore, the primary goals of the Technology and Library Media Services program are to develop students who use technology to:

  • Create and innovate
  • Communicate and collaborate
  • Research, evaluate, and use information skillfully
  • Think critically, problem solve, and make sound decisions
  • Participate as responsible, empathetic digital citizens.
  • Demonstrate a solid understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations
  • Nurture a love of the aesthetics of traditional books and the library as a place to build scholarly community
  • Develop balanced habits and boundaries with regard to time spent using technology and being present in the here and now

The Technology and Library Media Services Program is designed to provide: Support, resources, information, and guidance in the attainment of all of the aforementioned goals.
