Performance »

A beautiful 325-seat performing arts center is the centerpiece of O’Dowd’s commitment to both music and drama. If your student is interested in the theater or music, we offer many outstanding opportunities to participate in, or simply enjoy, our performances.


Faith & Service »

Encouraging students to explore their faith and participate in service learning is a core tenant of O’Dowd. Our campus ministry offers yearly retreats for every grade level that allows students to reflect on their relationships with God, self, and others. Required service learning examines both justice and injustice in our world, giving students the tools to analyze any social issue they may encounter.
