Visiting the Academy

Our Campus

We encourage all prospective families to visit The Grosse Pointe Academy’s beautiful historic campus, which sits across from Lake St. Clair on what was once a Colonial-era ribbon farm. The Academy’s distinctive French chapel was constructed in 1889 and connects to our main school building. The Academy grounds include tennis courts, soccer and lacrosse fields, an outdoor classroom and an enclosed playground.

Prospective families can virtually tour our campus with our Director of Enrollment. They will view classrooms and meet different teachers, and will have the opportunity to participate in an online class. 

Prospective students in Grades 1-8 are encouraged to spend a day with current students, which will give them a feel for the Academy experience. These “shadow days” will be specially tailored for each individual.
