About Us

Greetings

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to Decatur Adventist Junior Academy. The faculty, staff, and administrative team work diligently to provide a holistic educational experience for each of our DAJA families. We are also very proud to announce that we are a K-9 school. We now provide 9th grade to service our students on a high school level. If you have a 9th-grade student and believe that your child should have a Christian, holistic education at a STEAMS school, we invite you to redirect your child to Decatur Adventist Junior Academy.

More than the academic preparation, we have planned a spiritual journey on which your students will embark. This year, the spiritual focus is “The Three Angels Message”. We will spend time addressing, teaching, and integrating these messages to help our students understand the signs of these last days which are being fulfilled in our world. We feel it is necessary for our children to understand what is happening in light of Bible Prophecy. We know this will build a firm foundation to help them stand.

I am truly excited about the new school year and all of the opportunities students will have to grow in excellence.
