Admissions

Dear Prospective Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Good Shepherd Episcopal School.  We have so much to be proud of and are excited to share it with you.

Good Shepherd is a place where children are cherished as individuals within a community;  it is a place where they are supported by teachers, administration, family, and each other.  Although the school continues to grow with new facilities, programs, and cutting-edge technology, we sustain the same nurturing environment that our community first embraced 25 years ago.

Good Shepherd provides a learning environment rich in experiences.  Our students are not bound by the four walls of a classroom, as evidenced by vegetable gardens & composting, marine life studies on the Loxahatchee River, and leadership retreats at Jonathan Dickinson Park.  Our students are challenged in new and exciting ways, through such programs as accelerated math & finance, video production, improvisation, and global studies in art & culture.

I invite you to visit our campus and see for yourself what sets us apart from other schools.  Only a personal tour allows you to see why the children of Good Shepherd are “Learning to love, loving to learn.”

With warm regards,

How Do I Apply?

Admissions Process

Good Shepherd seeks students who can contribute to, and benefit from, the programs that comprise the School’s curriculum.  Admissions is open to academically qualified students without regard to race, religion, sex or national origin.  A tour of our campus and an Admissions Package can be obtained by contacting our Director of Admissions at 561-746-5507.

An application must be completed in full and returned with a non-refundable $50 application fee. In addition, a teacher recommendation and personal reference should be completed and returned.  When applicable, school transcripts and test records should be requested by you, and sent directly to our School by your child’s current school.

All applicants will be placed in a waiting pool. Once an opening has been determined, the prospective student will be scheduled for a screening or in-class observation.

Upon receipt of the acceptance letter, parents are requested to submit a non-refundable registration fee along with a signed enrollment contract in order to reserve a place for their child for the following school year.

The school must have the following information on file before a student may begin classes:  copy of birth certificate, current health form, and a current immunization record.

Tuition

Tuition is an annual fee and covers all expenses associated with delivering curriculum. This is payable annually, semi-annually, or in 12 monthly payments beginning in June (through May).  Since Tuition is based on a yearly fee, no reduction will be made due to an extended absence or if the child is withdrawn from school before the end of the academic year.
