Our Mission

Good Shepherd Christian Academy partners with family and church to provide a Christ-centered, Biblically based education emphasizing academic excellence and character development.

Our Vision

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

All teachers and assistants must give testimony of personal faith in Christ, be a Christ-like example to the students in all areas of life, and be faithful in attendance and involved in a Christian church; Curriculum is based on and interpreted in the light of God's revealed Word
