The Roeper School

Tel: (248)203-7300
Grades: PK-12 | 551 students
The Roeper School is a uniquely personalized, coeducational school for gifted children in preschool through grade 12 with campuses in Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham, Michigan.
At Roeper, we care deeply for children, understand the importance of these formative years and work hard to empower children at every stage and grade.
The current condition of our nation and our world demands that we educate children to care for others, think critically and reach for humanistic ideals in all of their interactions.
While a Roeper education allows our talented graduates to attend and thrive in the most selective colleges in the country, our school prepares children for far more than college.
Our students embody attitudes, values and strategies that enable them to go into the world as leaders and to share their gifts and talents successfully in today's society.
