Our Mission

The Way of the Shepherd Catholic Montessori School provides a nurturing learning environment personalized to each child and centered on God, where ministry to children helps them grow in holiness and become contributing members of society for God’s greater glory.

Fully Catholic

The Way of the Shepherd is a recognized Catholic school by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Students experience the Catholic faith on a daily basis and participate in The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a unique religious formation program based upon Maria Montessori’s spiritual teachings and the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church using Sacred Scripture and Liturgy.

Fully Montessori

The Montessori philosophy of education is that every child carries within themselves the person they will become. To develop their physical, intellectual and spiritual capacity, children must have freedom — a freedom achieved through order and self-discipline. Learn more about Montessori Education.
