Welcome to Good Shepherd School

Opened in 2001 as part of the vision of the late Fr. Harry Tompson, S.J., the Good Shepherd School provides an excellent education, paid for by benefactors, in a safe and nurturing environment to at-risk, under-served children in New Orleans. The effect of this exceptional academic opportunity is to empower these children by providing them with the tools to break away from the cycle of poverty into which they are born.
