Good Shepherd Episcopal School

  • Good Shepherd Episcopal School is for K-8 students who are embarking on a college preparatory track. Our small classes and dedicated faculty provide a wonderful learning environment. Good Shepherd students do much in addition to their daily academics. They sing and play violins and cellos, they learn Spanish, they pray daily and go to chapel weekly, they do art, they salute the flag in the mornings, and they participate in a robust physical education program.

School Notes

  • As an Episcopal school, we are open to students of various faith backgrounds.  A core value of Episcopal schools is valuing the dignity of every human being, and we strive to do that here. Although the school is for K-8 students, Good Shepherd also has a preschool for infants through pre-kindergarten.  Together, the school and preschool are able to serve a child from the age of 6 weeks until completing the 8th grade at 13 or 14 years of age.  Please come and visit us at Good Shepherd Episcopal School and see firsthand how we provide education in mind, body, and spirit in the heart of Punta Gorda.  We look forward to welcoming you!
