About GIA
Introduction to Griggs International Academy(GIA)

Griggs International Academy (abbr. GIA) was established by Mr. Fredrick Griggs in 1909. With its current headquarters located on the campus of Andrews University, Michigan, USA, this academy is about 2 hours’ drive away from the city of Chicago. GIA independently develops curricula and teaching management systems for its affiliated schools, and conducts assessments and evaluations of their performance.

GIA authorizes overseas institutions to establish GIA partner schools, which offer a 15-year-long, consistent system of curriculum for students’ development, as approved and accredited by the US Dept. of Education and other educational authorities—from kindergarten, through elementary and high school (ie: for students ranging from 3 to 18 years old.)
