Become a member of our community where we promote an inclusive environment that embodies the Xaverian values of simplicity, humility, compassion, zeal, and trust.
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 through the values of simplicity, humility, compassion, zeal, and trust.
Good Counsel's program of study prepares each student for success in college. Students may choose to take all courses within one academic program or select courses from different programs according to their aptitude, interest, and ability.
Good Counsel's Fine Arts curriculum inspires our students to read, interpret, and express themselves in a way that promotes an ongoing appreciation for the arts.
The goal of the Club Program is to foster students' exploration of their areas of interest, and build social and leadership skills.
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.
