Welcome, Prospective Families!

Dear Prospective Families,

Beginning the search for your child’s school can be daunting. Are you embarking on this journey for the very first time, seeking to make sense of the many educational choices in front of you? Or perhaps you’ve driven past The Grosse Pointe Academy but have yet to set foot on our lakeside campus. Or maybe you’ve just moved to the area and are eager to learn about this long-established independent school in your new neighborhood.

Whether you’re a preparing for your eldest child’s first school experience or anticipating your youngest’s turn to start school; whether you know exactly what you want from your child’s school or just want to learn more about us or about independent schools in general; whether you’re a native of Metro Detroit like me, or new to the area, we welcome you to our historic campus!

A carefully constructed curriculum, devoted teachers who know and care deeply for their students, and a program focused specifically on the most important ages: this is what you can expect at The Grosse Pointe Academy. Here, children find joy in learning and understanding while simultaneously building relationships that will last a lifetime. Eighth graders graduate ready to succeed at elite high schools and beyond, buoyed by the knowledge that the GPA community remains close and supportive.

The Office of Admission at The Grosse Pointe Academy endeavors to make the application and enrollment process as user-friendly as possible. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit, please don’t hesitate to contact me at or 313.886.1221. I look forward to meeting you soon!

All the Best,

Gray Jessiman
Director of Enrollment
