Portrait of a Grosse Pointe Academy Graduate

We believe that our students can do anything they put their mind to. Our faculty and staff provide academic and personal instruction and mentorship through active, participatory learning to enable a lifetime of success.

A Grosse Pointe Academy graduate will:

  • Reach his or her full academic, physical, and creative potential
  • Be prepared to succeed in an ever-changing world
  • Possess determined intellectual curiosity and a lifelong love of learning
  • Exhibit the highest moral character and principles

These four student outcomes are, above all, The Grosse Pointe Academy’s goal for each and every student – no matter their interest or ability. We believe in the potential of every young person that walks through the Academy’s halls and understand it is our duty to prepare them for a fulfilling and successful life long after they graduate.
