Priscilla Frederick (born 14 February 1989 in Queens, New York) is a US-born athlete competing internationally for Antigua and Barbuda who specialises in the high jump.[3] She represented that country at the World Championships without qualifying for the final. In addition, she won the silver medal at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Although born in the United States, Frederick holds a dual-citizenship due to her father coming from Antigua and Barbuda. Until 2012 she represented her country of birth and even placed seventh in the US Olympic Trials. She was raised and resides in the Sicklerville section of Winslow Township, New Jersey.

Her personal bests in the event are 1.91 metres outdoors (Toronto 2015) and 1.90 metres indoors (Staten Island 2016). Both are current national records.

Frederick began coaching at Princeton University during the 2016-2017 year.[4]
