O'Dea High School

O’Dea is a community grounded in character, faith, and service. Service to one’s community and the world is integral to any Catholic education. Our program is not just about service, it is about service learning. As a school we endeavor to shape students who reflect on their service in order to gain understanding about people’s lives and witness how our society does and doesn’t take care of its most vulnerable members. Our mission is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching and acknowledges that we all have a role to play in bringing the Kingdom of God to our broken world.
