Mission, Values and Vision


The college strives to provide an engaging, supportive and high-quality Catholic education in a safe learning environment, allowing all students to succeed and contribute to a better world.


Good Counsel College’s commitment to strengthening its Marist foundations can be found in the reimagining of the college values, in alignment with the key Marist characteristics:


Our vision reflects four key improvement priorities for the next strategic period:

  • Catholic Identity
  • Teaching, Learning & Wellbeing
  • Community Identity
  • Facilities, Staffing & Sustainability

Each of these improvement priorities is represented in our vision statement:

Good Counsel College is a contemporary Catholic learning community where every student is known and valued. We provide access to multiple pathways so that students are empowered to make meaningful life choices. They are engaged in learning that is relevant, collaborative, and future-focused. Staff, students, parents and carers make up a safe, supportive environment where everyone belongs, working together to achieve positive outcomes for all. We are a well-respected local college and proudly the school of choice in our community.  Our college boasts growing enrolments, engaging and highly professional staff, diverse subject choices, and modern facilities to support the needs of the college community.
