Shepherd provides an academically challenging curriculum, and our students regularly outperform other schools in national tests. We emphasize the development of critical thinking and independent problem solving to instill the skills for life-long learning.
At Shepherd, we believe in the benefits of physical activity and competition. Our students compete against other schools in the Denver Area Lutheran (DAL) Athletic Conference and other area schools in soccer, volleyball, basketball, and track.
To be National Lutheran Schools Accreditation (NLSA) accredited, schools complete a rigorous self-study, they are reviewed by a team of peers, they must implement initiatives that provide a continuing program of excellence, and meet or exceed state standards.
