Good Shepherd Cathedral School (GSCS), formerly known as Good Shepherd Parish Academy (GSPA), began as a preschool in 1995. The erstwhile pastor of the Good Shepherd Parish, Msgr. Fidelis Limcaco, with Dr. Carina G. Dacanay as the school principal, founded it simply as Good Shepherd Parish Learning Center. As Msgr. Fidelis’ brainchild, GSPA for children was a big part of the many beautiful and meaningful projects he accomplished during his twenty seven (27) years of pastoral service to the parishioners and residents of Fairview.

 

On August 1, 2002, upon the retirement of Msgr. Fidelis Limcaco, Msgr. Jesus-Romulo C. Rañada took over the directorship of the Academy. The school, already with recognition from the Department of Education for its preschool and grade school expanded further to offer high school in the curriculum and a Center for Integral Evangelization. It was also during Msgr. Rañada’s term that the High School department got government recognition, the four-storey building was constructed and the parish was elevated to the status of the Cathedral of the newly-established Diocese of Novaliches.The school was then renamed to Good Shepherd Cathedral School.

 

On May 13, 2007 Most Rev.Antonio R. Tobias, Bishop of Novaliches, appointed Rev. Fr. Albert N. Delvo as the new school director of the Cathedral School and superintendent of all the schools of the Diocese of Novaliches. GSCS has continuously grown to welcome a steadily growing number of students in Pre-school, Elementary and High School. To accommodate the increasing number of students, a new four-storey HEART (Acronym for His Excellency Antonio R. Tobias) building and another extension building were constructed to offer fully air-conditioned classrooms and E-learning facilities, a library with an audio-visual room, a speech laboratory, a well-equipped H.E. room, a bigger canteen, and a suitably comfortable playground including a modest swimming pool which our pupils/students highly deserve.

 

Facilitated by competent educators, GSCS uses Gospel Values with Religion as the core of the curriculum to develop not only the academic competence of the children but also to deepen their spirituality as well. Aligned with K to 12 educational curriculum of the government and enhanced by our implementation of the Dynamic Learning Program, GSCS continues to work in achieving its mission of providing all our students with an excellent Catholic Education and formation in Catholic faith and values.
