We are a Catholic college-preparatory community, guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, that educates our diverse student body to build a more just, joyful and sustainable world.
 
Above all, we are guided by our Charism - spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit - to find God in all things. We embrace our diverse community. We honor strength of character. We rise to academic excellence. We cherish the earth and all living things. We stand for social justice. We seek and hold onto joy.

OUR CHARISM

Finding God in all things calls us to:

Equity and Belonging
Building a Culture of Belonging

At O’Dowd, we work to build a community that honors and celebrates the dignity of every human being -  striving towards equitable outcomes and experiences for all students. We aim to create a school where students see themselves reflected on our campus, in our curriculum, and in our faculty and staff. Together, our students, staff, and families learn and grow, creating a culture where everyone feels the joy of belonging.
