Good Shepherd Episcopal School 

The Good Shepherd Episcopal School serves children aged 3 through pre-kindergarten.  The School’s mission is to provide a safe and loving environment in which children’s lives are transformed through its high-quality educational program.  At Good Shepherd Episcopal School, the well-being of each child is foremost.  Students flourish because of an educated and experienced teaching staff, a low child/teacher ratio, a high level of parental involvement, and a fully developed fine arts program.  Good Shepherd Episcopal School nurtures the whole child, academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.  The children of Good Shepherd Episcopal School attend during the fall and spring semesters according to a variety of schedules.

The Nook

UTO
