On May 5th, 2015 we have a unique opportunity to support the school’s operations while we grow the endowment. Known as the Olga Larimer Fund, the endowment is housed with the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County. Recently, the foundation announced that it aims to raise $2-$4 million for local nonprofits on Tuesday, May 5th. Thankfully, Good Shepherd is one of 52 organizations that will benefit from this golden opportunity. Click on the Give Local to learn more. On the actual day there will be a link to donate online.
Welcome by Dan Driscoll, Head of School
We are humbled by the remarkable school you are about to encounter. Our focus is a Montessori focus: joyful learning, spirited interaction, compassionate care for the environment, seeking to create a world at peace. Here at Good Shepherd we combine solid academics that have no limit with a faith-based foundation; we are an independent school, but we are centered on the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Catholic and Montessori faith formation process. This allows our children to ask the biggest questions and explore the universe in all its complexity, including its natural, scientific, moral, and religious complexity. We are South Bend’s only faith-based Montessori elementary school, and the only school in the Michiana region that engages a weekly farm component to bring botany, zoology, and environmental studies to the child in a very real, hands-on manner.
We look forward to sharing more about Good Shepherd.
Daniel W. Driscoll, Head of School
