Fit For Our Future Campaign

Fit For Our Future is a campus-wide fundraising campaign that will replace Trinity Hall. The new, 14,983-square-foot multi-use facility, featuring a regulation-sized gymnasium, will be used for daily physical education classes, sporting events, and school community gatherings. It will also include a new space for Classroom of the Earth, all while ensuring the safety and security of our campus.

 

The broad scope of the Fit For Our Future campaign will enhance academics, athletics, school safety, and COE, thus supporting the development of the body, mind, and spirit of our student body, and allowing our faculty and staff to focus their effort on educating students now and into the future. The GSES Board of Trustees enthusiastically joins our faculty, staff, and the family community in supporting the Fit For Our Future campaign.Bet Todd,Good Shepherd Board of Trustees President, Alumni Parent

 

Grow Our Facilities

Fit For Our Future is a pivotal initiative for Good Shepherd — ushering a new era of excellence for our school community. Centered on a remarkable building project that will replace Trinity Hall with a modern, regulation-sized gymnasium, the gym will be the epicenter for various gatherings that bring together our students, families, and dedicated staff. Moreover, its design as a Category 5 storm shelter will add an extra layer of safety and resilience to our campus. 

Increase Our Capacity

Classroom of the Earth is a signature program offered by Good Shepherd that teaches the value and importance of mindfulness and environmental stewardship through hands-on learning. Fit For Our Future will provide improved storage, meeting space, and workspace to facilitate the program for all grades. 

Strengthen Our Campus

The safety of our students and staff is paramount for GSES administrators. We're enhancing security across campus — building a Category 5 storm shelter within the new gym, installing access-controlled gates and fences, reinforced security doors, door alarm sensors, and a comprehensive access control system with cameras. Additionally, we've completed a perimeter fence screen at Kelsoe Cottage. Ensuring our students' safety remains our top priority.

A Contribution for Future Generations of Good Shepherd Cougars

“Being a part of the Good Shepherd community has been so life-giving for our children and our family as a whole. It was important to us to not only give back to the community in ways that would benefit our children and their friends, but also to make a contribution that will help future generations of Good Shepherd Cougars live into the mission of this amazing school.”

- The Elder family
