Admissions

Welcome to Our Lady of Good Counsel School!

Thank you for your interest in joining our community at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic School. Students who desire an educational experience founded on the Catholic philosophy of education and who fulfill the age, health, academic, and behavioral requirements are eligible for admission to OLGC School.

General Conditions of Admission:  A student is admitted to the school on the premise the student intends to learn the Catholic religion and be educated in a Catholic environment. In certain cases, students may be admitted on a probationary basis subject to the student successfully completing one or more subsequent interim evaluations. Students with academic or other needs (i.e., behavioral), which cannot be reasonably addressed by the school, may be denied admission.

If you require additional information, please email us at admissions@olgcva.org or call 703.938.3600, during business hours Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

We are only taking applications for Preschool, Kindergarten and 2nd grade at this time.  All of our other grades are full and the waitlist is at capacity. Please only submit an application if your child will be entering Preschool, Kindergarten or 2nd grade.


Fall Open House 

Please join us at our annual Open House on Sunday, November 17, 2024!
