Good Shepherd School, established in 1979, is a classical and Christian school in Tyler, Texas that offers classes from K4 through 12th grade.
Good Shepherd School has been established to provide an academically excellent education that is distinctively classical and Christian in the Anglican Tradition.
As a Classical school we employ the time-honored medieval “trivium” of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric as our educational philosophy and teaching methodology, in order to equip pupils for the future with proven tools from the past.
In the grammar stage, young students are taught the basic set of knowledge for each subject and the basic skills for mastering that knowledge.
In the logic stage, the curriculum takes advantage of the argumentative ability of the older pupil, channeling his natural inclination toward sound reasoning and careful thinking.
The rhetoric stage brings to fruition the art of learning. The student begins to integrate a whole sense of life, of the world, and of his place in it.
