Admissions Process

If you are interested in sending your child to Good Shepherd, please make an appointment to visit the school. We would be delighted to meet with you informally, give a tour, and answer any questions.

The next step is to complete a four-page application form, which should be returned to the school along with a $25 application fee and other supporting documents. We will sometimes ask an applicant to attend school for a partial or full school day so that we can get to know the student and the student can get to know us. Such interaction gives us a good sense of fit, which is an extremely important criterion for admission.

Admission decisions are never made by a single individual. We use a committee process, getting several members of the faculty involved in each decision. If an offer of admission is made, a contract is provided to the parents. The completed contract, along with the registration and materials fees, secures that student’s place in the school.

Good Shepherd Episcopal School does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, creed, color, or religion. We are a Christian school in the Episcopal tradition and, in accordance with The Baptismal Covenant of the Episcopal Church, we “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”
