Griggs University & International Academy

What was first named the Fireside Correspondence School became Home Study Institute, then Home Study International, and most recently, Griggs University and International Academy. Since its founding in 1909 by Seventh-day Adventist pioneer educator Frederick Griggs, this Christian distance education institution has served more than half a million students in many countries. Following the 2011 merger with Andrews University, Griggs International Academy has continued to grow its elementary and secondary programs, operated through the School of Distance Education. Griggs University programs were in teach out through 2015, as Andrews University negotiated new programs, expanding and strengthening higher education global partnerships.
