I am Mr. Jim Jones, Principal of Good Shepherd Academy in Kingston. I, along with my amazing faculty and staff, would love to welcome your student to our academy where we believe that every child can grow spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically in a caring Catholic learning environment.  Our academy is family oriented and our exceptional curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular programs offers various opportunities for all of our students to experience. At our academy we encourage parent involvement as we honor the belief that parents are the first teachers of their children. My team and I would be happy to talk with you about partnering with you on the educational journey of your child.  Please call me at 570-718-4724. Guardian Nation is waiting for you.

Good Shepherd Academy is committed to educate students and their families in the Catholic faith.   Founded in 2007 following the consolidation of a few elementary schools, Good Shepherd Academy blends the best traditions and practices of our founding schools to create our own Catholic identity.  We provide a Catholic education that is spiritually sound and academically excellent. We strive to prepare our students to be faith-filled leaders and life-long learners dedicated to serving the Church and society.
