Why Choose OLGC

My learning experience at OLGC has always been favorable. The teacher's lessons are fun and allow the students to express themselves. The homework we are given requires us to produce quality work and to manage our time wisely.

Our Lady of Good Counsel School is a fantastic value for military families. It's convenient location in Pearl City is near military housing areas. Showing up mid-year, we thought we'd feel like outsiders. Thankfully we felt welcome from the beginning--they even invited us to visit the classroom during school to see the teachers and students in action. Our son fit right in! The class sizes are small enough to guarantee personal attention and every classroom has air conditioning. The staff and faculty are very open and friendly. The application process is simple and our research showed the cost was very competitive for the high quality of academic and religious classes. OLGCS is definitely one of the highlights of our tour in Hawaii!

I am a former student and teacher of Our Lady of Good Counsel School. As a student, I particularly took joy in the faith-centered education the school provides. The school provided the opportunities needed for me to grow and mature academically and spiritually. During the last few years as a student at OLGC, I found my personal relationship with God and realized the importance of the Gospel values of peace, love, justice, respect and service.

While teaching at OLGC, I was able to witness and experience the ‘behind-the-scenes’ work. I got to take part in the teamwork of the staff and learned what the school does daily to encourage the academic and spiritual development of students- I discovered the ways OLGC puts a focus on successfully teaching the standard subjects while integrating faith. I appreciate the time I had working in partnership with the supportive staff and students’ families.

The best part is their "Big Buddy" system, that partners 6th-8th grades and Preschool 3 to Kindergarteners to help assist, learn and teach each other. Both of us care for each other through our "lil' and big buddies", by becoming the best role model. There is comfort of having a big brother or big sister around!
