Yes, the certifications (US vs JA) will differ, and also the requirements to attend individual colleges in Jamaica might also differ as well, however, you shouldn't have much difficulty gaining admission if you are properly qualified from your US high school.
Typically, you'll need to first contact the Admissions department of the school you are interested in.
Quite likely, they'll ask you to provide evidence of your qualifications which might include a transcript from your former school.
The Programs Director will process and make an assessment. For a start, take a look at the colleges in Jamaica.
