O'Dea High School

Books & Resources

Summer Reading List

The summer reading list will be available at the end of the school year. The required books for each course must be read before the beginning of the school year. Please contact your son’s teacher(s) with questions.

Digital Textbooks

O’Dea will be responsible for ordering and electronically delivering virtually all resources needed for your son’s classes. These will be delivered to your all tablet devices during the first week of school.

Workbooks & Novels

There are a few classes that still require hardback novels. Teachers will provide a list of required books at the start of each year in the syllabus. Please consult with your teacher for more information on required readings for the year.
