Welcome! We are delighted that you have chosen to learn more about our community and look forward to hosting you on a visit.

Our School was founded in 1964 as St. Croix Country Day School, split in 1967 into two schools—The Good Hope School and St. Croix Country Day School—before combining in 2013 after the closure of the HOVENSA refinery and becoming Good Hope Country Day School.

Good Hope Country Day School graduates attend the most prestigious universities in the United States and around the world, including Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, New York University, the military academies, and St. Andrews.

Good Hope Country Day is a highly selective, college preparatory school with a strong commitment to developing students who will use their talents to better the island and the world. We seek hard-working, open-minded, responsible students who are eager to learn with their peers and our stellar faculty. Our student body includes all socio-economic strata, a wide mix of faiths, and representation from nearly all continents and most Caribbean nations.  Good Hope Country Day School provides nearly $1M in financial aid and tuition assistance to ensure that we attract the best students regardless of their family’s ability to pay full-tuition.

We look forward to getting to know your family.

  • For our Early Childhood Program, placement is based upon chronological age and readiness screening results. As a general rule, a student should be 3 years old and potty trained (Nursery), 4 years old (Pre-Kinder), 5 years old (Kindergarten) by September 1st of the entering year.
  • For Lower and Middle School, placement is based both on academic readiness and chronological age. A student entering grade one must be 6 years old, grade two, 7 years old, etc., by September 1st of the entering year.
  • For Upper School, admissions is based upon academic readiness and successful completion of the previous grade. Chronological age is an important consideration.
