"The knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom.
The Christian church has always regarded education as one of the tasks involved in its pastoral ministry to people of all ages.
The Bishop Noland Episcopal Day School (EDS) of the Church of the Good Shepherd is an instrument of this ministry in that it attempts to guide the child in spiritual, as well as emotional, intellectual, and physical development. Any worthwhile education must take into account the fact that a child is not only a rational, but also a spiritual being; and that a sound mind and a sound body are related to reverence, charity, respect, and those things of the spirit, which are values common to, yet transcend human life. The role of the Bishop Noland Episcopal Day School is that of helping the child develop all facets of personality in proper orientation as a child of God. Each child is unique, an individual, one of God's children.
