Our commitment to Christian school had long been established as the third pillar, along with the home and the church. Together these three would educate our children. My prayer was that whenever we had kids, excellent educational options would be available. Thank God for Decatur Adventist Junior Academy – an answer to prayer.

Going back to DAJA’s inception over 20 years ago up until today, I have been privileged to work alongside committee members, board members, outstanding staff, and parents who have been dedicated to establishing a school of excellence on Young Road. I can truly say that the effort paid off for my children. DAJA provided a well-rounded, exceptional educational experience for Matthew and RaeChelle within a nurturing, Christian environment. What’s more, the teachers and staff truly welcomed parental involvement and input which allowed for an integrated, cohesive approach to their learning. The warm memories and bonds of friendship between students and parents are too numerous to count. Whether it was the epic out-of-state bus trips that took us to the White House, Smithsonian, Pennsylvania; the fantastic social events; the rally days, school spirit weeks, prayer conferences; academic testing prep; spelling bees; student government election campaigns; sport competitions; extracurricular activities and performances such as sign language, drama, music; or the basic 3 Rs - these all formed a rock-solid platform that allowed our children, along with so many others, to excel. Even today, as confident, well-adjusted adult Christian professionals, they remain close friends with their DAJA peers and in touch with former teachers – Amazing!

Thank you DAJA! I will always be grateful for the role you played in my children’s lives. I will always do my part to contribute to your continued success. Congratulations on 20 plus years of outstanding service.
