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 30 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, marine life studies, and unique & engaging field trips. Our students are challenged in new and exciting ways, through project-based learning, dedicated time in our STEAM Lab, and a robust & multicultural Arts program.
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.”
Head of the School
TOUR A tour of our campus can be obtained by contacting our Director of Admissions, Megan Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-746-5507.
APPLY An application must be completed in full and returned with a non-refundable $50 application fee. If you are applying for Kindergarten through Grade 5, a teacher recommendation should be completed online, and school transcripts and test records should be requested by you and sent directly to our School by your child’s current school (see forms below).
WAITPOOL Once an application and supporting documentation have been submitted, applicants will be placed in a waiting pool.
MEETING During the late Winter, prospective students will be scheduled for a screening or in-class observation.
ACCEPTANCE Upon receipt of the acceptance packet, parents are required to return their signed enrollment contract along with a non-refundable registration fee in order to reserve a place for their child for the following academic year.
ENROLL 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. We are not able to accept Religious Exemptions for newly enrolled students with start dates after July 1st, 2022.
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.
Good Shepherd strives to assist families in affording a quality education to the greatest extent possible. A completed Admissions Application must be submitted to the School prior to applying for assistance.
We have partnered with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to make applying for financial assistance as easy and confidential as possible. Please do not submit your information directly to our School; all financial information will be uploaded directly to the NAIS.
