About This Activity

The 2015 Charger Challenge will help fund playground equipment for the new Early Childhood Center which is scheduled to open in August 2015.

Contact ChargerChallenge@gmail.com with questions.

On September 7, 2014 we broke ground at our main campus for the new Early Childhood Center, which will house our daycare, 3-year old preschool, 4-year old preschool, half day and full day Kindergarten classes. 

Good Shepherd provides a Christ-Centered quality Christian education for 3-year old preschool through 8th grade students.  The main campus is located at 1300 Belt Line Road and is the home for our Kindergarten to 8th graders.  In addition to the regular curricular, our students also benefit from instruction in art, P.E., technology, foreign language, choir/band room, sport programs and the use of a media/library room.  Good Shepherd also provides a before/after school program, school’s out club and summer day camp opportunities.  Currently our daycare and preschool programs are located at our second campus on Chapel Court. 

Since 1987 Good Shepherd has been effectively meeting the Christian education needs of the community.  Our current Preschool to 8th Grade enrollment consists of 40% members to 60% nonmembers.  The 2014-2015 student body of approximately 350 represents 18 cities throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area. These students will have the opportunity to hear the grace, love and forgiveness of our Lord Jesus Christ from quality, caring Christian teachers. Our staff is committed to providing a quality education with emphasis of a Christ-lefted environment.
