Good Shepherd Catholic Academy

Mission Statement


Good Shepherd Catholic Academy exists to provide an excellent education to its students in a safe and secure learning environment. Through Christ’s example set forth in the Gospel, our dedicated faculty show our children how to love and respect each other, themselves and their community. Our Academy provides the knowledge and skills needed for success in life through a rigorous curriculum, enriching activities and an atmosphere of mutual responsibility. Good Shepherd Catholic Academy’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that each child is made in the image and likeness of God, uniquely called to love, learn and share life to the fullest. It’s through that framework that we encourage every student to develop as a total person- intellectually, emotionally and spiritually- in hopes that they may lead others beyond their days at GSCA.



Vision Statement

 

At Good Shepherd Catholic Academy, the faculty and staff will work collaboratively to ensure that meaningful student learning will take place each day. All teachers will dedicate themselves to striving for excellence in their profession, thus modeling that same desire for excellence for their students. All students will be proficient throughout the curriculum, demonstrating their ability regularly in their daily work and through formative and summative assessments. Dedication to and growth in the Roman Catholic faith  will fuel our existence as each member of the Good Shepherd community will strive to grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord and His Church. Proficiency and excellence in both literacy and mathematics will be emphasized, as will a commitment to discovering the world through social studies and the sciences. Students will be equipped with interpersonal and 21st century skills, allowing them to be successful beyond their days at Good Shepherd Catholic Academy.
