In 1982, St. Philomena and St. John the Evangelist parishes combined to form the Church of the Good Shepherd on 7th Avenue Parkway in Denver. As a result, the two parish schools merged as well, and with the newly combined Good Shepherd Catholic School, a tradition of excellence in Catholic education has continued.
For many years, Good Shepherd students enjoyed a Catholic faith-based education that was divided between two campuses: the St. Philomena building on Fillmore Street and the St. John’s School building on Elizabeth Street. In 2003, Good Shepherd celebrated the opening of a beautifully renovated campus, where the history and tradition of the original St. John’s School building was combined with the addition of a new, state-of-the-art school and Parish Family Center. Since that time, the school has nearly doubled in size and now educates 460 students, and the Parish Family Center serves as a place for community gatherings and fellowship for more than 1,000 parish families.
Good Shepherd is committed to teach and to serve our children and families by inspiring academic excellence, fostering a love for Jesus Christ within the Catholic faith, and building a compassionate, inclusive community through both Traditional and Montessori philosophies.
