Griggs' APLE (Accredited Program for Learning Environments) program is a tool used to help enrich NAD Elementary, Junior and Senior Academies with curriculum and teachers.

APLE was developed cooperatively by the North American Division Office of Education (NADOE) and Griggs to meet the needs of our students unwilling or unable to go to a boarding academy hundreds of miles away. 

By enrolling in the APLE program, NAD schools are able to use a combination of Griggs and local school resources to offer grades 9-12 to students who might otherwise enter the public school system. It is designed to fit into the traditional school year schedule.

Griggs has a multi-tiered Learning Management System (LMS) that allows our partners, teachers, supervisors and students to be directly involved in student progress. This portal enhances the way Griggs communicates and manages the Adventist schools that partner with us.

On occasion, and with approval from both conference and union, schools may offer a complete high school program using the APLE program. Students in these schools receive Griggs (Maryland state-approved) diplomas. The APLE program may be viewed as an interim solution for a school wishing to permanently expand its program.

All partnerships between Adventist Schools and Griggs must be approved
by the local conference and union education departments before the start of school.
