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.
