As St. John's only preschool through high school program and the island's only high school, Gifft Hill School plays a critical role in our community. We believe that quality education should be available to any child who exhibits the will and ability to work to Gifft Hill School standards; therefore, we offer tuition assistance to over 60% of our students.
We are proud of our accomplishments and believe our mission is a noble one, but we rely heavily on the voluntary financial support of parents, grandparents, alumni and concerned friends who believe in education and love St. John.
Every single gift, regardless of size, is greatly needed and deeply appreciated. There are many ways to support GHS: donations of time and talent make a tremendous impact on our school, whether it be helping in the classroom, on the athletic field, at one of our fundraising events, or a parent workday.
The Education And Resiliency Through Horticulture (EARTH) program’s deliverables include increased awareness and appreciation of where our food comes from and an understanding of the effects healthy, locally grown food can have on physical and mental well-being, the community, and the broader environment.
Gifft Hill School incorporates community service and philanthropy into our curriculum, with the belief that sharing our valuable resources such as time, hard work, and facilities is a positive experience for our students as well as our community.
