Employer Description
 
Serving the greater Washington metropolitan area for more than 60 years, Our Lady of Good Counsel High School was founded in 1958 by the Xaverian Brothers as a Catholic high school for boys. After thirty years as a Catholic high school for boys, Good Counsel became co-educational in 1988 and continued to serve an expanding student body. Over the decades at the Wheaton campus, the need for a larger, more modern facility grew. In 2007, Good Counsel relocated to a new building on 51-acre campus in Olney, where the school thrives today as the largest co-educational Catholic high school in Maryland. The school’s mission is to “inspire our students to excel, serve, and love.” 2021-22 fast facts: Faculty - 102 teachers 1,259 students IB World School (since 1995) Nationally-recognized STEM program 49% of Class of 2021 enrolled in a US News Top 100 National University or Top 50 Liberal Arts College 58% of students identify as Catholic 47% of students identify as White; 23% Black; 11% Hispanic/Latinx; 8% Asian; 7% Multiracial; 5% Other.
