O'Dea High School

Mission Statement

O’Dea is a Catholic high school whose mission is to educate young men and prepare them to be men of character, faith and service.


O’Dea High School provides young men with a Catholic, college-preparatory education.  In the spirit and tradition of the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education, O’Dea’s diverse, single-gender learning environment lays a rich foundation for the academic and social development of our students.

All Boys

O’Dea High School, the only all-male Catholic college preparatory high school in the Pacific Northwest, is a unique and special place for young men. Our educators intentionally use teaching practices designed to support the way young men learn. Through Advanced Placement, Honors, College in the High School, and college prep courses, O’Dea prepares each student to succeed at a post-secondary institution of their choice. We combine the best traditional teaching practices, with movement and competition in the classroom, to engage our learners. These teaching strategies, along with newly designed classrooms with innovative educational technology, and the House System, provide our young men with an exceptional education and unparalleled bonds of Brotherhood that will last a lifetime.
