Welcome To THE 8th Grade Academy

Welcome to the 8th Grade Academy! This unique opportunity gives our 8th grade students a great environment to close out their middle school years and make a smooth transition to high school.

The 8th Grade Academy offers a year-long transitional program on the Eastpointe High School campus to prepare students for success in high school and beyond. 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. We can’t wait to help your middle schooler make the leap to high school and beyond!

Locker Pickup

We have many items that have not been picked up from student lockers.  We will be allowing students and or parents to come pick up these items on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.  

Please remember to wear a mask.  We also must limit the number of people who enter at any given time, so please remain socially distant if you are requested to wait outside. We have all items bagged and in the hallway by the Gratiot Entrance (Door 42) and can be easily picked up in a timely manner.  If you wish to make alternate arrangements, please call the school at 586-533-3718 or 586-533-3719.  Thanks and have a great summer!

Welcome 8th Graders!

To continue the tradition of welcoming all future Shamrocks to our Secondary Campus in this time of remote learning, we are excited to have you "meet" many of the staff from our 8th Grade Academy in this short video. We hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it for you!
