As a learning community, we are committed to offering students a wide breadth of unique courses and relevant learning opportunities to explore their interests, nurture their passions, and develop their own academic path. Our faculty and program directors guide students to think critically, deeply engage their subject material, and bring their learning into the world. Our robust co-curricular opportunities, from debate and robotics and journalism, to formal student leadership and a wide range of clubs, alongside visual and performing arts, offer students transformative experiences to connect with what they care about and make a contribution in our communities.

We are a technology forward campus. Our faculty and staff design curriculum to incorporate best-in-class education software and collaboration platforms to support a variety of learning styles and activate student engagement. And our tech support team is always ready to help!

Arianna 12th Grade
“I fell in love with biology in the 10th grade. Our teachers emphasize hands-on learning, and through dissections, research projects, and group presentations I gained a deep understanding of science that prepared me to excel in Advanced Placement Biology as a junior. In college I plan on taking the passion and leadership skills I've developed to major in neuroscience.”




At O’Dowd, we are committed to a whole person education model and our academic programs are scaffolded with robust support systems. We provide social-emotional resources to help students navigate the complexity of high school, including peer education, peer counseling, and therapy. We provide a layered system of both subject tutoring and executive skill building to help every Dragon succeed academically. Together, our Health and Wellness and Academic Support programs help students to gain confidence, self-advocate, and build healthy relationships.
