    Why the Academy

    As a parent, you seek a school that will nurture your child as a lifelong learner who is academically prepared for high school and beyond. In our four academic divisions, Early School, Lower School, Intermediate School and Middle School, you can find everything you need for your child to flourish. 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.

  • About the Academy

    The Grosse Pointe Academy is an independent, coeducational day school serving children age 2 1/2 through Grade 8. We foster an inclusive environment that respects all cultures and religious beliefs. We seek to remain faithful to our heritage as a former Academy of the Sacred Heart and to those who through their Catholic faith and perseverance sought to preserve and enhance the legacy of this past for generations. Incorporated as a non-profit institution, The Grosse Pointe Academy is directed by a Board of Trustees working together to serve the Southeastern Michigan community.
