Our Mission: Reaching children and families with God’s truth: spiritually, mentally, physically, socially.

Our Vision: All who attend Good Shepherd Lutheran will know Jesus through baptism and study of the Word. They are assured of eternal life through faith in Jesus and are equipped to benefit their community as they live a Christian life.

Small class sizes, family atmosphere, and a fully accredited Christian elementary school.  Yes, it is all right here at Good Shepherd Lutheran.

For more than 30 years the teachers and pastors at Good Shepherd have educated students in academics and God’s inspired Word.  From Kindergarten through 8th grade our school is accredited through the state of South Dakota to teach all subjects.

How do our students perform? National surveys have shown that students in Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod elementary schools perform better than their peers across the country. Students at Good Shepherd performed well on the new Smarter Balanced tests. We always strive for excellence and are committed to reviewing our curriculum and providing what is best for our students.

With an enrollment of around 60 our school is able to provide a full-time kindergarten with a cap of 15 students. Good Shepherd also features multi-grade classrooms with a cap of 25 students which help students grow both academically and socially.  With our small class sizes your child will get the attention he or she deserves.

Like what you hear?  Contact us and we’ll help you enroll your child and you will find out why the Lord has blessed us with one of the best private schools in Sioux Falls.

And after 8th grade? Our students also have the option of attending high school at Great Plains Lutheran in Watertown, SD. Great Plains is a dorm school for parents seeking continued training in God’s Word. Call and ask for more information about how it works.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
