Founded in 1998, GSCM is one of a handful of Catholic Montessori schools nationwide that integrates Catholic and Montessori education and that fully utilizes the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for the spiritual formation of its students. GSCM serves approximately 200 students, ages 3 to 14. The school has had ten graduating 8th grade classes, is owned and operated by an independent Board of Trustees, and is affiliated with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
GSCM is characterized by at atmosphere of joy among children and adults; an active, involved parent community; and a dedicated, talented, stable staff. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, the school has a 13-acre campus with rolling hills, fields, and forests; several buildings (including a chapel); a natural playscape and grounds for outdoor work and play. Since purchasing the campus in 2012, GSCM has made significant improvements to its facilities.
