Tuition & Payment Plans

Our Lady of Good Counsel school community unites to learn, live, love and serve in the Salesian spirit. We inspire lifelong learners to thrive in a global community, recognize and love God’s presence in all, serve others with humility, and live Jesus.

We hope you will see that this is an investment in your child to affirm their Catholic identity and instill deep-rooted spiritual values as well as an education geared toward the development of the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially.
