Grades: K-8 | 39 students
Our purpose is to establish a partnership with the parents which focuses on providing a quality education in a Christian setting while integrating all learning with faith in Jesus Christ.
Upon graduating from Good Shepherd Lutheran School your child will possess two clearly identifiable traits: One, they will truly understand what it is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
A firm foundation with Jesus Christ will guide them throughout life.
Two, they will have obtained a wide range of skills and academic knowledge.
These skills will serve as a solid base on which to build lifelong learning.
Both traits will enable them to be leading members of society, involved members of their congregations, and witnesses for Jesus Christ wherever they are called to serve.
