The Columbia Lutheran Association of Schools, of which Good Shepherd Lutheran School is a part, exists to be a partner with parents, assisting them in raising their children, and helping everyone to grow in love, knowledge, and faith in Jesus Christ.


Thank you for your interest in Good Shepherd Lutheran School!  Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make in the life of your child.  Your child will be greatly influenced by the teachers and programs to whom you entrust him or her.  Selecting a school that will reinforce your values about education, life in this world, and life eternal is absolutely vital.  We’re so glad you are exploring how Good Shepherd Lutheran School could successfully partner with you.

 Discounts – Members of our sponsoring congregations, Trinity and Campus Lutheran Churches, will receive a 20% discount, so tuition for these students will be $3,600. Members of other Lutheran churches will receive a 10% discount on tuition. This student rate will be $4,050.

Financial Assistance – Families applying for Kindergarten-Grade 8 at Good Shepherd Lutheran School may apply for financial assistance through Tuition Assistance Data Services (TADS). TADS is not a source of assistance; rather, a third-party qualifier that is impartial, confidential, and accurate.  GSLS uses TADS exclusively to calculate family tuition assistance need. It is preferred that families apply for assistance only after the family has met with the administrator and their online application to GSLS is complete.
