At Good Shepherd Catholic School, student life is more than academics. We provide an array of rich opportunities for athletics, extra-curricular activities, leadership, service, and supportive community that makes every child’s experience special.
In 1982, St. Philomena and St. John the Evangelist parishes combined to form the Church of the Good Shepherd on 7th Avenue Parkway in Denver. As a result, the two parish schools merged as well, and with the newly combined Good Shepherd Catholic School, a tradition of excellence in Catholic education has continued.
For many years, Good Shepherd students enjoyed a Catholic faith-based education that was divided between two campuses: the St. Philomena building on Fillmore Street and the St. John’s School building on Elizabeth Street. In 2003, Good Shepherd celebrated the opening of a beautifully renovated campus, where the history and tradition of the original St. John’s School building was combined with the addition of a new, state-of-the-art school and Parish Family Center. Since that time, the school has nearly doubled in size and now educates 460 students, and the Parish Family Center serves as a place for community gatherings and fellowship for more than 1,000 parish families.
Good Shepherd is committed to teach and to serve our children and families by inspiring academic excellence, fostering a love for Jesus Christ within the Catholic faith, and building a compassionate, inclusive community through both Traditional and Montessori philosophies.
