Purpose

A guiding principle at Shepherds College is that each of us has been "designed by God on purpose and for a purpose." This principle provides direction for the Spiritual Life component of the Shepherds College experience. Students at Shepherds College will have ample opportunity to discover the God that has designed them and investigate the specific purpose He has for their lives.

Each semester, select classes will feature teaching centered on the Bible and its practical application for our everyday lives. Weekly chapel services are also part of the Shepherds College program. In addition, students attend a local church and actively participate in the church community. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to receive counseling based on the Truths of God's Word.

As we attempt to prepare each Shepherds College student for Appropriate Independence, we are committed to providing a setting that will encourage spiritual growth. We believe learning and life should both be centered on Jesus Christ.


Mission statement

Shepherds College exists to educate and train students with intellectual and developmental disabilities by equipping them to reach Appropriate Independence through the development of vocational, social, and life skills while inspiring a lasting awareness of God's plan for their lives.

History

It was 1957 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin when parents of a son with intellectual disabilities approached their Sunday school class at Garfield Baptist (Spring Creek Church) and asked a probing question. "Could our class actually do something to help children with intellectual disabilities?" Answering that question would lead to the establishment of a ministry that would go on to have a profound impact on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.

In 1964, Shepherds Home and School opened its doors, welcoming 36 children. At that time, little was being done in public education to address the needs of this special population. Shepherds Home and School provided an essential service to these children and their families.

In 2008, Shepherds Ministries returned to its educational roots with the establishment of Shepherds College, a three-year, post-secondary school for individuals with intellectual disabilities. And that's when it all began.
