Cayman Islands offers an excellent selection of schools.

Educational facilities range from pre-k/kindergarten school through to universities, which include a law school and a medical school. There are both public and private schools which operate on either the British System (Cayman Prep and High School, St. Ignatius Catholic School, and Government schools) or the American System (Cayman International School, First Baptist School, Grace Christian Academy, and Triple C). The Cayman Islands Government mandates that work-permit holders employed in the private sector should enrol their children in private schools. If the expatriate is employed by the government, the employee has the option of enrolling their children in a public school. Caymanian children have the option of attending either public or private schools. Most private schools have long waiting lists so it is imperative that parents enrol their children as early as possible at a minimum of two preferred primary schools.

The Cayman Islands Government operates a number of primary and secondary schools; however, because of limited space in the primary schools, non-Caymanian children have to be enrolled in private schools.
