At Good Shepherd, you will see a structured program from preschool through eighth grade emphasizing high academic standards and enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
Witness the daily study and integration of God’s Word and the daily loving and caring interaction of students, staff, and families.
We believe that young children should have the opportunity to learn more about their Savior, Jesus Christ and learn and practice basic Christian truths of love, care, and forgiveness with one another, we also see the importance of providing an environment where the child can grow physically, mentally, and socially.
