About GIA

Griggs International Academy offers a full Kindergarten to 12th grade curriculum in regionally accredited programs. Since our founding in 1909 as part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, GIA has provided a Christian education to nearly a half million people around the world.

We serve an essential part of life for hundreds of missionary families, as well as thousands of adult and school-age students who cannot or do not want to attend a traditional classroom school. Distance education families across the country, and international students in 22 countries on five continents trust Griggs for their Christian education, leading to a U.S. accredited high school diploma.

After more than a century of service, we remain dedicated to the worldwide educational mission entrusted to us. While our name has changed over the years, our commitment to student success and high academic standards has never wavered.
