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.
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.

Good Counsel has a well-known reputation of top level athletics. We believe that a truly comprehensive education challenges the whole person. Our student-athletes learn self-respect, self-discipline, and self-esteem. They learn how to win with dignity, handle defeat, and acknowledge their mistakes. But most importantly, they understand themselves better as they strive to live the Xaverian values on and off the field.
