Mission Statement
Good Shepherd Catholic School prepares students for a life of learning, service, compassion, personal excellence, and faith in God.

Good Shepherd Catholic School adheres to belief in Jesus Christ as the foundation of the entire educational enterprise in a Catholic School, and it recognizes its own role as part of the teaching mission of the Catholic Church.The school regards parents as the primary educators of their children and affords parents and teachers the opportunity to cooperate with one another in the formation of Christ's children.

Good Shepherd Catholic School recognizes the importance of the development of the whole child.We are committed to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of each student in a creative and safe environment.We believe in academic excellence built on a sound framework of moral values; therefore, we will use a traditional, value-centered approach to education.This effort will include prayer and opportunities for service at every level.

Our instructional goal is to teach the art of learning and inquiry, with measurable results.Therefore, we follow a standards-based curriculum.With a contemporary understanding of child development and modern innovation, various educational methods will be employed to insure individual mastery.

Good Shepherd Catholic School cultivates spiritual growth, character development, and a work ethic based on a well-established moral compass.We foster academic mastery and esteem through achievement.We promote quality work through respect for learning, discipline, honesty, and punctuality.It is our expectation that each student of Good Shepherd Catholic School will grow to his or her potential.
