Mission/School Philosophy

Mission:
Good Shepherd Episcopal School, in the heart of Punta Gorda, Florida, fosters the development of its students into leading citizens by providing them a college preparatory K-8 education that stresses the importance of mind, body, and spirit.

Core Values:
Good Shepherd values a traditional academic program in the context of the 21st century. Skills such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking are as important in the 21st century as they were when Socrates taught them in ancient Athens. Good Shepherd emphasizes music, the outdoors and hands-on activities. In the Episcopal tradition, we embrace the importance of faith, scripture, and reason. Students of various faith backgrounds are welcome to join our school community.
