Tuition and Enrollment

An Academy Education

The Grosse Pointe Academy is an inclusive institution that welcomes children regardless of economic status and provides payment plans, need-based financial aid, and a limited number of merit scholarships to help make an Academy education accessible for every child.

As an independent school, The Grosse Pointe Academy is reliant on tuition and fundraising to attract the nation’s best teachers and administrators, provide extracurricular activities, furnish classroom materials and maintain our historic campus.

We believe the Academy experience can be measured by the incredible future success and accomplishments of our graduates in high school, college and beyond. An investment in a Grosse Pointe Academy education provides a tangible advantage that lasts a lifetime.
