In 1958, the Xaverian Brothers brought their distinctive approach to Catholic education to the Washington D.C. metropolitan area when they opened Our Lady of Good Counsel High School. At that time, Good Counsel committed itself to the Xaverian Brothers' ideals of academic excellence and service to the community, values that remain true more than 60 years later.

Today, during this challenging time, we continue to deliver our mission to excel, serve, and love.

In honor of our founding, we are launching a 58-hour giving challenge from September 8, 2020 11:00 a.m. to September 10, 2020 at 9:00 p.m to raise money for the Fund for Good Counsel to support our Falcons.

Gifts to the Fund for Good Counsel will support our entire campus, directly helping every student, every faculty member, and every academic program, including emergency aid for financial assistance and technology needed for our families during the pandemic. By giving, you help Good Counsel take advantage of mission-driven, real-time innovations that are needed now more than ever to allow us to provide a dynamic education and creative opportunities to our Falcons.

Celebrate Good Counsel’s robust history of educational excellence and Xaverian traditions with a gift to allow the school the support to excel, serve, and love now and into the foreseeable future. Together we are Falcon strong and we will persevere!
