Welcome to Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic School where we combine spirituality, academics and service to prepare our students to live a faith filled life. We are a Roman Catholic school serving students in early childhood and grades Kindergarten through eight. We are accredited by the state of Illinois and are a member of the Diocese of Rockford.

     Since 1910, our mission to provide a Christ-centered, academically excellent and safe school environment in which all children can achieve their maximum God-given potential is supported by a challenging curriculum that integrate Diocesan Academic Standards with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Religious education is a priority, with prayer and worship a daily component of school life.

     Our Lady of Good Counsel is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful school experience. Our community of learners is made up of outstanding students, an expert and dedicated staff of caring professionals, active and involved parents and a supportive community. Teachers are highly qualified professionals and each models the belief that Christ is the reason for our school by nurturing the children in our care.

     Our Lady of Good Counsel School students' thrive-achieving personal growth in a safe and supportive atmosphere in which their success is frequently monitored, acknowledged, and celebrated. We measure success through our evaluation of the whole child-the academic progress, the growth in responsibility, and the good citizenship that the students learn and practice. Students are challenged to dream big, assume leadership roles, and always remember that their actions and words define their character.

     I feel tremendously blessed to work with everyone who makes this a special place for our families and their children. I am looking forward to providing leadership that will continue to build upon our current success while looking towards a future of continued growth in excellence. Our lady of Good Counsel Catholic School is a Christ-centered community where the traditions of our past point the direction for our students' future.
