Peace Corps Elementary School, St. Thomas

If you are relocating with children, researching the school systems in the Virgin Islands is likely one of your top priorities. Public, private and parochial schools are available in the USVI. Schools exist on St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John. Water Island has no schools, it does offer a home school group. Home schooling is an option some parents on all four islands pursue.

There is a university in the Virgin Islands, it offers associates, bachelors and masters level degrees. The University of the Virgin Islands has a campus on St. Thomas and on St. Croix.

Note: St. Thomas is in close proximity to St. John and to Water Island; some students from St. John and from Water Island commute daily to attend classes on St. Thomas and while the percentage is far fewer some students also commute from St. Thomas to St. John and Water Island.

Visit the Virgin Islands Department of Education for general information on public schools in the Virgin Islands. For information on Public Libraries visit Virgin Islands Public Library.
