It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to Decatur Adventist Junior Academy. The faculty, staff, and administrative team have worked diligently this past summer to provide a holistic educational experience for each of our DAJA families this school year. We are also very proud to announce the new technology updates to our school. We have provided our homeroom teachers with interactive whiteboards and collaborative desks for individual and whole group instruction. Yet, more than the academic preparation we have been anticipating and planning the spiritual journey students will embark on this school year as well. This year the spiritual focus for the students will be the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’. We will spend time addressing, teaching, and integrating each of the nine pieces of ‘fruit’ love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control into our spiritual school culture. I am truly excited about the new school year and all of the opportunities students will have this year to grow in excellence.
