International Learning and Study Abroad Opportunities

Our Lady of Good Counsel High School offers wide-ranging international learning opportunities, including student exchanges with partner schools in other countries, Model UN participation and a global scholars program to help each student expand his or her world view.

Explore Student Exchange Programs

Each year Good Counsel students are offered the chance to study abroad through student exchange programs with our partner schools. Each trip has its own schedule, cost and requirements. You will be expected to stay with, as well as to host, your exchange student.

Each trip's application, details and acceptance will be determined by each trip leader.

Links for each exchange will go live if available.

Model United Nations

Being an IB school, Good Counsel supports extra-curricular activities that encourage students to study people and cultures around the world. The Model United Nations Club has won several regional conferences. The club participates in multiple conferences in the region throughout the year. Participants must commit to regular practices. If you're interested, please contact Mr. Devinne. We will contact you for an interview and guide you through the registration process.

Global Scholars Program

Under the guidance of Director of Global Programs, students build e-portfolios by depositing essays and projects they complete through activities and courses at GC that are related to global issues and perspectives. Successful students receive recognition upon graduation and can use their e-portfolios for college application. See the template of the e-portfolio and how it works here.
