To Know, Love and Serve God

Four Day School 2022-2023
Homeschool Academy 2022-2023

The Good Shepherd Academy is an independent, coeducational K-12 school located in Pomona, CA. It was founded by parents as primary educators and seeks to lead students to know, love and serve God through a rigorous classical education aligned with the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. It encourages frequent reception of the sacraments, reverence for the Mass, and Eucharistic adoration. It also emphasizes the development of the virtues, discipline in learning, and appreciation of beauty.

The Good Shepherd Academy has both a four day school (Monday through Thursday) and a one day a week (Friday) homeschool academy. It is planning to have a summer camp in the summer of 2023.


The Good Shepherd Academy encourages parents who are interested in enrolling their children in the school to make an appointment to visit and are welcome to include their children in the visit.  During-the-school day Open Houses are held for the four-day school every Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30.  On Fridays, parents and children interested in the Homeschool Academy are invited to tour the campus and preview classes from 9:00 to 12:30, and are invited to meet with the Head of School from 12:30 to 2:00.  The Open Houses are open to all interested parents and their children but advance appointment is required.

May: Month of Our Lady

The Good Shepherd Academy honors Our Lady especially in the month of May. We sing her praises as we crown her Queen of our hearts, and of heaven and earth. We venerate Our Blessed Mother under her many titles and virtues in the Litany of Loreto and pray the rosary in our May Crowning ceremony.
