Keeping your child safe!

Shepherd of the Woods School is committed to keeping your child safe by implementing the following procedures.

Elementary-HS Virtual Learning

Elementary-HS Virtual Learning

While our students and teachers are in different places, we are connecting with each student for each subject area via Google Meet. We are using Google Classrooms and ClassDojo to assign and assess lessons to measure mastery and inform instruction.

Preschool Virtual Learning

While our students and teachers are in different places, we are connecting multiple times a day with standards-based, developmentally appropriate activities so our students continue to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.

Blended Learning

With our blended learning model, your child will receive personalized, differentiated instruction in small groups (6:1) and grow skills with adaptive, academic online apps. Your child will also collaborate with others to develop academic and social skills. These methods will help your child perform at the highest level possible at the right pace: advanced, typical, or remedial. Your child will also develop digital literacy skills and be prepared for college or a career.

Our Vision

Shepherd of the Woods School is dedicated to growing based on our Seven Core Values. These values are the foundation for educating happy, healthy children to become lifelong learners and disciples of Christ who are ready to be productive Christian citizens in our rapidly changing world.
