About Good Shepherd Episcopal School
Nestled at the corner of the James River and Forest Hill Park, Good Shepherd Episcopal School serves the children and families of the City of Richmond and surrounding counties by offering a core K-8 curriculum enhanced by Spanish, technology, outdoor education, the arts, and comparative religion to children of all faiths. The school is distinguished by its diversity, which it sees as a core strength, believing that the most essential 21st century skill is the ability to create viable, productive relationships with many different kinds of people from varying backgrounds. We encourage understanding between and respect for all people, regardless of intellectual, cultural, racial, and socio-economic differences. We are committed to providing an intellectually challenging environment for each student, while laying the groundwork to help students prepare for their future endeavors in all aspects of life. Graduates attend competitive, college prep high schools, both public and private.
Good Shepherd is accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS) and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Virginia Council of Private Education (VCPE).
