Decatur Adventist Junior Academy is pleased to announce the addition of ninth grade. We are a host school working in conjunction with Griggs University.
Griggs is part of the Seventh-day Adventist school system. Today Griggs plays a unique and vital role in the educational development of students of all ages in all parts of the world. In 1990 the Griggs Board of Directors assigned names to its three academic divisions. Thus, Home Study Elementary School, Home Study High School and Griggs University (GU) became a part of Griggs’ terminology. In 1991, GU began offering college degrees to international students who had no access to an Adventist campus. In 2011 Griggs was adopted by Andrews University (AU) and moved location from Maryland to the Berrien Springs facility. Griggs University became the AU School of Distance Education, with Griggs International Academy (K-12) falling under that umbrella.
We are using two classes in the Griggs University system, and the remaining classes are taught by High School Accredited teachers one of which is Mr. Matthew Ross.
