Academics that Empower
GSS is proud of our newly revised academic program. At the core of the program is an inquiry based, technology rich, STEAM-infused curriculum, enriched with coding and robotics and augmented by arts enrichment and intervention. The theme-based learning units enable students to gain knowledge of a subject area from multiple perspectives and allow for tracking student progress on a given theme throughout multiple subject areas. The new curriculum features elements that will empower our students to surge ahead of the academic curve:
In addition to core subjects, all Good Shepherd students participate in an after school enrichment program as a part of our extended-day, year round model. The program integrates our STEAM-infused curriculum into arts, music, dance, engineering, athletics, robotics and more. Students receive homework assistance, tutoring, mentoring, and have the opportunity for running through Youth Run NOLA.
The aim of the program is to build on what the students learn in school through interdisciplinary activities designed to nurture each child's self-esteem, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Additionally, the extended school day provides the safe and nurturing environment that fosters learning and exposure that they may not have otherwise experienced due to the socio-economic challenges they face.
