The Academy Fund

Dear Friends of The Grosse Pointe Academy,

The year 2020 will most certainly be remembered as a very different year for all of us.  One of the biggest take-aways will surely be increased gratitude for the daily activities that we can often take for granted – and that includes the opportunity of sending our beloved children to such an outstanding school each day.

In the midst of much uncertainty and challenging times for many, the faculty and administration are working hard to embrace our children – nurturing the potential of each and allowing them to discover their unique strengths and passions.

In a “normal” year, our annual fundraising appeal, the Academy Fund, is crucial to allowing The Grosse Pointe Academy to deliver the educational experience that sets our school apart.  Gifts to the fund support the academic curriculum as well as the arts, STEAM, athletics, foreign language, Christian life, electives courses and community service programs.  It also allows GPA to maintain its buildings, classrooms and beautiful historical lakeside campus.

This year, the Academy Fund is more important than ever. In addition to our normal annual objectives, there are increased costs associated with providing a positive and safe environment for our students and faculty.  GPA has also invested in new technology and resources to ensure our students can continue their full-time studies while we navigate through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, more than ever, we need our school, and the school needs our financial support.

We have an ambitious goal of $200,000 and we truly believe that “Together we can!

Every contribution makes a difference!

Thank you for your support of The Grosse Pointe Academy.
