Admissions and Finance

We are finalizing the re-enrollment for the 2021-2022 School Year.  Please note that the re-enrollment is not automatic.  You must indicate your intentions to re-enroll either through the GEMS Parent Portal or the GEMS Connect App using your GEMS parent username and password and and you must do this for each child.  We are experiencing an increase in demand for enrollment.  If you have not confirmed for next academic year, placement may not be guaranteed. 

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it on the login page.   If you have difficulty, please send an email to receptionist_daa@gemsedu.com and we will assist you.  For any questions on the re-enrollment process, please contact our admissions team at registrar_daa@gemsedu.com
