In carrying out this vision, Good Shepherd Lutheran School strives...

  • To prepare God’s children for eternity in heaven, which Christ has won for us all. 

Our Objectives

  • Live and function in the family, showing respect and love to parents and to God from whom the parents receive their authority. 

  • Grow in a spirit of love and obedience towards God's representatives in the church and school.

As a child develops emotionally, he will

  • Recognize his sin and need for a Savior.
