Background Statement

The Church of the Good Shepherd was established in downtown Punta Gorda in 1896, bringing the Episcopal Church to the area for the first time.  A preschool was added in 1963, and young children have been cared for ever since.  The church has moved once, from its original location to the present site at the intersection of West Henry Street and Shreve Street.  Planning began in the late 1990’s for a new school.  In 2000, Good Shepherd Day School was founded on the present campus.  The school originally had a kindergarten, adding a grade level each year.  Classes were held in prefabricated buildings and spaces in the church and preschool buildings for the first several years.  The current school building, Ventura Hall, on the Shreve Street side of the property, was completed and occupied in 2007.  The building is home not only to the school but also to the prekindergarten classes from the preschool. In 2016, the present name, Good Shepherd Episcopal School, was adopted, along with the motto: education in mind, body, and spirit in the heart of Punta Gorda.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

My participation on the Board of Good Shepherd Episcopal School is an exciting opportunity to support and encourage the work of the school. The motto of “Mind, Body and Spirit” speaks very well to the efforts of the school in offering a challenging education to capable, interested students in an atmosphere that produces strong values. The education is strong in traditional subject matter yet is provided in the context of contemporary technology. The challenges of the Board are many, but focus on assisting the school in identifying students who can benefit from the type of curriculum offered and on maintaining adequate resources to support that curriculum.


Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

Good Shepherd Episcopal School is for K-8 students who are embarking on a college preparatory track.  Our small classes and dedicated faculty provide a wonderful learning environment.  Good Shepherd students do much in addition to their daily academics.  They sing and play violins and cellos, they learn Spanish, they pray daily and go to chapel weekly, they do art work, they salute the flag in the mornings, and they participate in a robust physical education program.   


As an Episcopal school, we are open to students of various faith backgrounds while also being a Christian school. A core value of Episcopal schools is valuing the dignity of every human being, and we strive to do that here.

Although we are a private, independent prep school for K-8 students, Good Shepherd also has a preschool for infants through pre-kindergarten. Together, the school and preschool are able to serve a child from the age of 6 weeks until completing the 8th grade at 13 or 14 years of age – a remarkable degree of stability during a child’s crucial formative years.

Please come and visit us at Good Shepherd Episcopal School and see firsthand how we provide education in mind, body, and spirit in the heart of Punta Gorda. We look forward to welcoming you!

Programs
Description Clubs: Each faculty member is asked to offer an after school club one or two times a week for a portion of the school year.  Examples of clubs this year are gardening, writing, cross country running, music (playing recorders), majorettes, and Storybook STEM.
Budget $2,500

Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Children Only (5 - 14 years) Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Short Term Success The students' learning will be enriched by the array of extra-curricular offerings.  Some of the programs foster physical conditioning, others contribute to academic prowess, and some help students to develop an aesthetic sense.  These are mission-appropriate offerings that are consonant with the school's emphasis on mind, body, and spirit.
Long Term Success Exposure to extra-curricular offerings now at the elementary and middle levels prepares students for high school and college environments that offer far wider ranges of activities.  Allowing students to explore many interests now will help them in the future to hone in on their true interests.
Program Success Monitoring As a new program, the best assessment for now is participation.  The clubs have proven to be very popular.
Program Success Examples Two clubs that were originally slated for the fall season only have been extended because the students desire to continue their participation.  (These clubs are running and music.)
