We know you want your children to be in a nurturing, loving environment before and after school. Our Good Shepherd Afterschool program features loving adults, snacks, designated homework areas, secure iPads and recreation time all in a safe, secure, home-like environment that is designed especially for children.

The Afterschool Program has been postponed until 2022.


Who can attend?

Any student ages K-8th enrolled in a Charlotte-Mecklenburg School or Charter School.


How are the students grouped?

Your child will be grouped with students in his or her grade.


What about middle school students?

We love and respect our middle school students! We want to be there for them and help them cope with all the changes middle school brings. We also want to create a safe haven for our middle schoolers to socialize, talk about their challenges, homework, projects, problems, solutions, and victories!


Will my child get help with homework?

Yes! We sign the reading logs and provide assistance with homework each day. We will not do the homework for them, but we will help them with all resources possible.


What about teacher workdays, school holidays, winter break or spring break?

We offer a half-day 4 hour program on teacher work days. We are closed on school holidays, winter break and spring break. We are also closed if CMS closes due to inclement weather or delays due to inclement weather.

How do I contact you?

Will CMS buses pick-up and drop-off at GSUMC?

Yes, schools that are located in the CMS Blue Zone will stop at GSUMC. Parents must request an “alternate stop” via CMS.


What does the afternoon consist of?

The teachers will strive to enhance literary skills, assist with homework, provide a snack, recreation time and build social skills.
