Annual Events

Here are upcoming get-to-know O’Dowd Admissions events. For all Admissions events dates and details, including the mandatory High School Placement Test dates and admissions deadlines, please view our Google calendar »



Some Catholic and Independent schools choose to bring their 8th grade classes to O’Dowd for an organized school visit. This experience allows us to provide each student with an opportunity to tour O’Dowd, visit multiple classrooms and interact more intentionally with our students.  You may peruse the Admissions calendar for schools that have scheduled visits » Please also check with your school, teacher or principal.


The O’Dowd Student Visit Program is designed specifically for current 8th grade students or incoming transfer students. We recognize the importance of choosing a high school and hope that a visit will help students for themselves if O’Dowd is the right fit. These student visits provide each student with an opportunity to visit two classrooms and meet fellow O’Dowd students. If your school has scheduled a school visit program, you will receive the same visit experience and do not need to sign up for an individual student visit.

The 2016-2017 Visit Program is now closed.  8th graders who are admitted to the Class of 2021 but were unable to join us for a visit  this year, will be offered an opportunity to tour campus prior to the registration due date in March.
