Our Lady of Good Counsel High School was founded by Xaverian Brothers as a college-preparatory school for boys in 1958. Thirty years later, we opened our doors to young women. Today, we educate over 1,200 students each year in the Xaverian tradition of academic excellence and caring.

Good Counsel's program of study prepares each student for success in college. Our curriculum is defined, yet flexible. Students may choose to take all courses within one academic program or select courses from different programs according to their aptitude, interest, and ability.

BECOME INSPIRED BY WHAT WE OFFER. Our teachers foster lasting relationships and provide rigorous academic programs for all levels of learning. Good Counsel’s faith formation and service opportunities, as well as more than 30 cultural and academic clubs, cultivate students’ interests.

In accordance with the Xaverian Philosophy of education, we hold a sacred responsibility to develop and encourage our students to experience, express, and create the extraordinary in their everyday lives. Our Fine Arts curriculum inspires our students to read, interpret, and create things that express what cannot be experienced through any other means.

Good Counsel offers students extracurricular and co-curricular activities through the Club Program. The goal of the Club Program is to foster students' exploration of their areas of interest, and build social and leadership skills. Particular focus is given to teaching students how to use their gifts and talents to serve others. Some clubs participate in interscholastic competitions, like Robotics and Speech and Debate.
