Founded in 1945, Good Shepherd Episcopal School (“GSES”) is a parish day school ministry of The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.  Located just west of downtown Austin, Texas, GSES currently serves 146 children from age two through Kindergarten and employs a staff and faculty of 32 professionals. GSES’ educational philosophy centers around a play-based, character-enriching, early childhood program focused on educating the whole child. In 2015, the school opened a brand-new facility, completed as part of a $22 million, shared capital campaign with the parish. 

In April 2016, our Head of School, Jeanie Stark, announced plans to retire at the end of the 2017-2018 school year.  At that time, she will complete what has been a highly successful, 11-year tenure that has shaped GSES into one of the finest preschools in the city. Together with Jeanie, the Board has started planning for our school’s next chapter.
