Focus is on character and respect. The boys learn discipline and how to be courteous to others. The term brotherhood greatly exists as the loyalty that they have for one another is very high. The teachers and staff care about the students and want the best for them, yet there is a great balance between showing them how so they can do for themselves and be independent and resourceful. Environment builds confidence and competiveness. Great decision we made for our son!

O'Dea uses a system called the "House System." Now what is the house system you ask? Well, the house system can be best described as the Hogwarts of Seattle, at least that’s how I imagined it during my freshman year. Just like how in Harry Potter the wizards are separated into four different groups, O'Dea separates its students into four different houses. Every house consists of students from all grade levels and what this does is it breaks down the barriers between each grade level, allowing for better communication, support, and brotherhood within O'Dea as a whole. is the power of the House system; it unites O'Dea students and builds the brotherhood by accepting everyone's personalities, ideas, and backgrounds. And it is the perfect environment for a gentleman to learn character.
O'Dea is the only male only school in the state of Washington. This place is very unique for many reasons. At O'Dea, the bond between the students is like no other. Since it is a small school, you get to know a lot of people and no one is a stranger. Also, there is no tension between classes. With the house system, we are able to create a bond between everyone. If you do not know what the house system is, it is a system where instead of using the classes to divide each other, each student is placed into one of the four houses.
