Shepherd Christian School

  • 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.
