High Point Academy is proud of the long tradition of academic excellence and success of its students. The secondary placement process at High Point prepares its graduates for a seamless transition from an elementary and middle school experience to the next chapter in their academic career. Graduates continue their education at the most acclaimed independent schools in the community.

The high school acceptance rates tell our story. Last year, our graduates gained entrance into numerous acclaimed local independent high schools and earned over $700,000 in merit scholarships.”
