Good Shepherd Christian Academy partners with family and church to provide a Christ-centered, Biblically based education emphasizing academic excellence and character development.
Our goal is to provide an educational environment that is spiritually based, emotionally encouraging, physically safe, and intellectually challenging. We believe a child has the best opportunity for success when home, church and school are working together in harmony towards these ends.
Our Philosophy in Practice
