Welcome To THE 8th Grade Academy

The Eastpointe Middle School 8th Grade Academy provides a year-long transitional program to prepare students for success in high school. The school-within-a-school concept provides students with access to expanded advanced and elective course offerings.

In addition to strong academic offerings, students at the 8th Grade Academy have the opportunity to participate in student council, National Junior Honor Society, sports, and more.


The 8th Grade Academy is planning to celebrate the Class of 2022's promotion to high school with a promotion ceremony Wednesday, June 15.  Join us at 8 a.m. in the EHS auditorium to celebrate our soon-to-be freshmen on their middle school successes!
