It was inaugurated in 1942 by Sir Robert Reid, the Governor of Assam.[7] When Meghalaya attained statehood in 1972, the name was changed to Adventist Training School (ATS). It served the people of East India and Northeast for many years as a Secondary School until it got upgraded to a Higher Secondary School in 1997, recognized by the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE). In 1999 this institution was affiliated to the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU).
