Decatur Adventist Junior Academy is the place where education fosters dreams and a place where children are guided to align with the concept of unlimited possibilities.
DAJA features project-based learning which keeps the students interested and engaged as they experience hands-on, real-world application of the curriculum. As a School of Excellence with Magnet School Status and a STEAM School, our students are introduced to various areas of science through our science lab. Technology is integrated with the use of iPads in each classroom along with our computer lab. Our robotics club provides the platform for understanding and executing engineering. We provide a wide variety of fine arts options which include drama, praise motion, visual arts, photography, and music. Math is infused throughout the curriculum.
Additionally, our students are given the platform from which to understand economics and entrepreneurship as they create and run their own small businesses to create revenue. They are taught about tithing and charitable giving as a part of their business plan and are exposed to real life authentic learning as they create their own Shark Tank.
At DAJA, learning is more than reading, writing, and math. It is a place where students are given the ability to forecast a future, write a vision, and then are guided to walk in the journey of their dreams achieving even more than their parents expected.
With Christ at the center of all that we do, our students are taught core Christian values such as honesty, integrity, perseverance, and self-control. They are taught the most fundamental rule for a peaceful and productive society, which is “do unto others as you would have others do unto you. “
You see, greatness is not something that happens by chance. It is cultivated and harnessed to help our students realized that they are only limited by themselves and the choices they make. Understanding these concepts will propel them to be the trailblazers and leaders now and in the future.
For us, it’s about impact. Impact that starts with a little child but who’s ripple effect will change the world.
Decatur Adventist Junior Academy. Be there this Fall.
