The mission of Our Lady of Good Counsel School, a Catholic parish elementary school established in the Augustinian tradition, is to foster the formation of the whole child according to the message of salvation as proclaimed by the Catholic Church. As a Catholic educational institution we strive to help children acquire the skills of the 21st century and instill in them the virtues and habits of mind and heart required for service to others. We strive to accomplish this through the teaching of doctrine, the Sacraments, daily prayer, and an appreciation of the Scriptures. We hope to enable children to address the business of living in their world responsibly through the development of a Christian conscience. We believe that:
We are dedicated to creating an environment that is based upon treating every child, teacher, and parent with dignity, respect, and Christian love.
Our purpose is to instill the virtues of faith, hope, and love in every child.
Our Lady of Good Counsel School develops the child spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially, and culturally.
Service to others and a sense of responsibility is vital.
All children entrusted to our care will have a better knowledge of themselves, their community, and the Lord.
Through daily prayer, monthly liturgies, seasonal prayer services, and liturgical practices our Catholic faith community will grow.
