Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid

Good Counsel seeks to provide a quality college preparatory education at the most affordable rate possible. Our tuition fees are set annually by the Good Counsel Board of Directors in January. Tuition rates include daily lunch for students. Tuition does not cover the cost of books, uniforms or extracurricular activities fees. However, five books are provided by the State of Maryland at no charge to every student. A registration fee is charged to all new students, and a graduation fee is charged in the student's Senior year.

Financial Aid

Good Counsel offers financial aid to qualified families to help reduce the total cost of tuition. We encourage all students, both new and returning, to complete the online FACTS application each year. These forms take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Good Counsel uses FACTS (Nelnet tuition services) for the collection and initial evaluation of financial data. FACTS does not decide whether financial aid will be given or how much to give. FACTS provides a need-based financial analysis service.
