Welcome to GHS
Welcome To Gifft Hill School
We offer dynamic, experience-based programs for toddlers through twelfth graders from the communities of St. John and St. Thomas. The Gifft Hill School learning community is committed to reflecting the cultural diversity of the Caribbean basin and being inclusive in every way. As we seek to meet these goals, GHS considers every applicant's potential to benefit from and enhance the school’s academic and co-curricular programs. Our commitment to maintaining small class sizes, means that sometimes we receive more applications than we have spaces. Below you will find more information about the procedures and timelines that guide the
re-enrollment and admissions process.
In accordance with the Gifft Hill School’s Equal Opportunity Policy, the school admits qualified students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, sex, religious creed, disability, or any other status protected under applicable federal or territorial law, to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
NEED BLIND ADMISSIONS
We are committed to making a GHS education accessible to those who seek to join and enhance our community. Admissions decisions are not influenced by a family's financial situation. Applications for admission and for financial aid are considered independently of each other. A family's eligibility for aid is determined through careful analysis of financial information including recent tax returns, provided by parents and guardians.
