College Preparatory and Honors Programs

Good Counsel offers students the chance to grow in their educational pursuits over the course of their four years at our school. Beginning with the College Preparatory Program and the Xaverian Honors Program, students develop the foundational skills they will need to succeed in later years at Good Counsel and in college.

College Preparatory Program

Preparing for college is an essential part of the Good Counsel experience, and it starts from day one for all students. Each student in our College Prep program gains exposure to essential content as they develop skills needed to be accepted into college. Over their four years in high school, students receive the type of personalized attention and guidance that has led to our 100% reported college placement rate at four-year colleges or universities, including some of the top schools in the country. For the class of 2023, almost half enrolled in institutions ranked by US News as Top 100 National Universities or Top 50 Liberal Arts Colleges.

Xaverian Honors Program

For many students, this program is the precursor to taking Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programs as upperclassmen. Students may choose to dive into subjects they are passionate about, selecting from 50 classes covering just about every subject available.
