“To grow in wisdom and stature before God and men”
The Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori is dedicated to providing an outstanding education to children ages three to fourteen in a Catholic atmosphere faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. Using the philosophy and techniques of the Montessori approach, including religious education through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, our goal is to enable each child to develop as a well-integrated human being: spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and emotionally.
Educational Curricular Goals
The Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori mission meets the vital educational needs of today’s youth, including:
- Academic excellence
The child will be an active and joyful learner, who thinks critically and masters organizational and academic skills. The child will be supported in reaching his or her full potential.
- Spiritual formation
The child will develop a genuine personal relationship with God through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Nurtured by a vibrant Catholic culture, the child will live a life of faith, characterized by a strong sense of morality and exercise of the virtues.
- Social responsibility
The child will develop self discipline marked by a strong sense of personal responsibility within an open learning environment. The child will demonstrate courtesy, respect, and cooperation with others and will exercise stewardship of the gift of God’s creation.
- Parental participation
The school will promote the role of parents as the primary educators in the formation and education of the child.
The Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori strives to make its unique educational opportunities affordable to many families who could not otherwise afford a private Montessori education. We accomplish this by carefully controlling tuition costs, offering significant sibling discounts, and working to enlarge an existing scholarship fund.
The Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori serves children of Greater Cincinnati regardless of race, creed, or national origin.
