Welcome to Good Shepherd Lutheran School in Burnsville, Minnesota! We feel that it is an honor and privilege to be able to serve families by providing a Christ-centered school for their children.

It is certainly important that we educate children to be responsible and productive citizens in this world. We strive to teach the  children in our care to faithfully use the gifts and talents which God has given to them. More importantly, it is our goal to assist parents in preparing their children for eternity. Through the work of our qualified and faithful teachers, Bible-based curriculum, and Christ-centered atmosphere, we are confident that the Lord guides and blesses our efforts as we spiritually train the precious souls in our care.

As you look through this website, you will see many programs and opportunities available for our students. Academics are vital as we train students to use their God-given abilities productively. But providing other opportunities outside the classroom is also important as we prepare students for life. We don’t know exactly how the Lord will use each child in the future, so these extra opportunities can help them become well-rounded and properly equipped in becoming good stewards of their abilities.

If you have any questions about our school or would like to schedule a tour, please contact us. We are happy to help you as you make plans for your child's Christian education!
