Georgetown International Academy

Georgetown International Academy (GIA) is known locally as “the American school” of Guyana. Founded in 1971 by members of the US Embassy community in Georgetown, Guyana, GIA became fully accredited by SACS-CASI AdvancED in 1998. GIA provides an American international curriculum that facilitates an easy transition for students to and from other American, Canadian, and international schools and universities. Our student body and faculty comprise a richly diverse cultural, religious, and ethnic mosaic in which all individuals are respected and valued.

GIA students learn and thrive within a community that appreciates and fosters global citizenship, academic excellence and global awareness while empowering well-rounded individuals who are educated for success in life.

Our Nursery through Grade 12 curriculum educates the whole child via a balanced, student-centered program that is grounded in academics, fine arts, global citizenship, and health and wellness education. We recognize that learning and education are journeys rather than destinations, and each person’s journey will be individual and unique. Our positive discipline philosophy is grounded in the five Tribes™ community agreements of demonstrating mutual respect, listening attentively, showing appreciation, participating actively, and giving one’s personal best. Rather than rewards and punishments, we guide students toward accountable and responsible decision-making that promotes robust self-esteem and ethical citizenship.

Our community members take great pride in our high standards and expectations for students and faculty members. We appreciate and promote collaboration, academic achievement, social responsibility, critical thinking and ongoing learning beyond the classroom, integrity, and respect for others, self, and the environment.
