director Dear Prospective Parent and Student,
I want to welcome you as we prepare to start our second year at GS.  I'm excited about our new classes, and am looking forward for fall to get here so we can get going again!  Feel free to browse through the website to get an understanding of what we're striving for, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. I hope you'll like what you see and will want to be part of our community.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Diana Cunningham (Director)

Admissions:

Please Note:  We are not a private school. We are not registered as a Florida private school.
Instead, we are an educational resource for homeschoolers.
This means that all students need to be registered with their Florida county as homeschoolers,
and follow the state requirements for homeschooling in Florida.We welcome students of every race, color, and national origin. Neither parents nor students are required to subscribe to a particular statement of faith; however, parents and students are expected to cooperate with the school administration and to recognize the Christ-centered, biblical nature of our program of education.

 

Admissions Process

1. Read the information on our website to determine if you think our part-time schooling method will be a good fit for your child's homeschool education.  (Feel free to email goodshepherdfernandina@gmail.com if you have any questions.)
 

2. To register, please fill out the Registration form. Links to the files for the form are at the top of the page. If you'd rather, you may simply email your child's name and grade level, and your contact information to: goodshepherdclassical@gmail.com and we will do the registration manually.

3. Once you send in the Registration form, your child will be officially registered. (If we have reached our limit of 20 students prior to receiving your child's registration form, I will let you know immediately.
 

4. At some time before the school year starts (which is August 18), I'd like to meet with each new student and a parent to make sure we're all on the "same page" and to discuss any concerns or suggestions you may have. I will schedule an appointment with you after I receive the registration sheet.

 5. There is a $100 registration fee per family which will cover some of our start-up costs. This fee can be given to me at our meeting or sometime before the first day of school
 

6. Eventually there will be a handbook describing in a little more detail how Good Shepherd works. For now, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me at goodshepherdfernandina@gmail.com

 7. We are doing our best to keep monthly fees very low. Right now, the fee will be $25/month. These fees will be used for school related expenses like decorations, supplies, field trips, and parties. (High school monthly fee will be $35/month for online component.)

    Boys: Navy pants or shorts of any style (except gym shorts),
    any solid blue-colored (can be any shade or type of blue) polo type shirt,
