Congratulations to GPA kindergartners!

The Academy’s continuum of learning awaits the Early School Class of 2017.


On June 9, members of The Grosse Pointe Academy’s Early School Montessori kindergarten class celebrated their graduation, which means many likely will matriculate to the Academy’s Lower School in the fall.

The continuum of learning, which began for the young students in GPA’s Early School, will now flourish for them in Grades 1-3. Each child is exposed to strong academics in a traditional classroom setting, supported by an array of opportunities for self-expression through music, art, creative movement and physical education.

Beginning in the Lower School, children at the Academy are taught the following disciplines: language arts (including writing, literature, spelling, vocabulary and grammar), mathematics, science, environmental science, social studies, technology, French, music, art, creative movement, physical education and Christian Life. Technology is used as a tool to enhance the learning environment.

In the Lower School classrooms, teachers employ multi-texts and design programs in which each student can progress at his or her own level. In addition, a learning-resource specialist is available to provide reinforcement or enrichment to match individual needs.
