New Families

On behalf of the faculty and staff we thank you for the interest that you have shown in Good Shepherd Lutheran School. 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.

Your first step for enrolling your child is to call the school office at 952-432-5527 and schedule an appointment to come and visit. This will give you an opportunity to tour the facility, ask questions, and give the principal some background information on your child. Our principal will then give you a packet of information which you can read to help assure that our school will be the right fit for your child’s future education.

May the Lord bless your efforts as you make plans for your child’s future Christian education.
