Shepherd Christian School was founded in 1997, as a ministry of the Shepherd Church of the Nazarene.
Our mission is to provide an engaging and challenging Bible-based course of study for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
At Shepherd Christian School, academics are paramount -- and it shows.
Our students routinely score one full grade-level higher than average on national standardized tests.
This is because we recognize that, in order for a student to take a leadership role in the vocation of their calling, they must be intellectually prepared for the task.
Our curriculum focuses on the basics.  In order for a student to succeed, they must succeed in their grammar and mathematics courses.
And while we expect our students to work hard, we don't expect them to work alone.
Our staff of talented, certified instructors nurtures and guide the students through the process of learning.
And because we maintain a low eighteen-to-one student-to-teacher ratio, each student is able to receive the individualized attention that they need to succeed.
