Integrating the school's Catholic and Xaverian mission, the Retreat Program is a strong Good Counsel tradition, providing an opportunity for spiritual formation in the lives of our students. Students are required to participate in retreats for their first three years, and they are invited to participate in an optional retreat during their senior year.
Our Lady of Good Counsel High School considers retreats to be an essential part of our overall educational process. In terms of importance, retreats take precedence over all sports and extracurricular activities. Should a student desire to switch his/her retreat date due to a serious conflict with an athletic or personal commitment, the request must be made by a parent in writing no later than four weeks prior to the scheduled retreat for sophomores and no later than eight weeks prior to the scheduled retreat for juniors.
