Mission

Good Shepherd is an amazing community...a place where my child feels known, loved, and challenged.

History

As an outreach to the residents of Warren County, NJ, Faith Discovery Church established Good Shepherd Christian Academy in 1979. 

From the very beginning, GSCA intended to provide care and education to students of all ages, but the school initially limited academic offerings to students of Grades K-8, due to the size constraints of the church property and facilities.

In 1995, the school purchased the former campus of Warren County Community College -- a beautiful 7.5-acre property with two buildings.  In 1996, after renovating the 20,000-sqft academic building and 25,000-sqft gymnasium and administration building, the school moved to its current campus and added preschool and high school programs.

Wanting to provide high-quality care and education resources for parents of infants and toddlers, the school launched its Infant & Toddler Learning Center in March 2018. 

During the 2018-19 academic year, the school will celebrate its 40-yr Anniversary and continue to build on the legacy of the school's founders through partnering with families and churches by offering the following programs: Infant & Toddler Care, Preschool, Kindergarten, Elementary Division studies (Grades 1 through 5), Middle Division studies (Grades 6 through 8), and Upper Division studies (Grades 9-12 provided through an online/onsite delivery system).
