The Academy Cornerstones

The Grosse Pointe Academy faculty is committed to not only establish what we want students to learn, but also what they will be able to do with the knowledge they acquire. 

With this purpose in mind, we developed the Academy Cornerstones. The Cornerstones are attributes that we will develop within each of our students, serving as guideposts for adding depth to student learning.

We believe that each Cornerstone is essential to our students’ success in school and in life and aligns with the school’s mission and core values. It is our responsibility to develop a curriculum and establish a learning environment that nurtures, challenges and inspires our students to become intellectually curious, empathetic, leaders, independent, global citizens, active listeners, critical thinkers and effective communicators.
