The Roeper School

Tel: (248)203-7300
  • 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.
