O'Dea High School

Financial Aid

O’Dea High School is dedicated to helping families in need pay for their tuition. With our community’s support we give over $1.2 million in tuition assistance and scholarships. Families are invited to apply for financial aid after reviewing the important details and requirements listed at the bottom of this page. It is important for families to review the application deadlines and follow the process outlined.

The majority of awards are given through special funds at O’Dea High School and the O’Dea High School Foundation.  Other examples of financial aid and scholarships opportunities are listed below:

Edmund Rice Leadership Award Scholarship

O’Dea awards a small number of merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen who have distinguished themselves through outstanding academic achievement, personal excellence, service, and leadership. Edmund Rice Leadership Award Scholar’s receive a scholarship of $2,000 per year for their 4 years at O’Dea. There is no application for these awards and they do not require any demonstrated financial need. Students are notified of the award in their acceptance letters.

Named Scholarships

O’Dea has several named scholarships available for students with demonstrated financial need. These scholarships are made available through endowments established by individual donors and are awarded through the financial aid process.

Fulcrum Foundation

Families are invited to apply for financial assistance through the Fulcrum Foundation, which increases access to Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Seattle by providing tuition assistance grants to children and families based on family income and other special circumstances. Click HERE to learn more.
