At Out-of-Door, students are expected to participate in the life of the school and they do so through a variety of extracurricular activities. It is not unusual to find a student who plays a varsity sport, participates in theatrical productions, writes for the school newspaper and participates in Student Council. ODA students graduate as caring, well-rounded, morally responsible members of society.

We invite you to visit campus. To schedule a tour of one or both of our campuses, please contact the Admissions Office. Come meet the people who make this a special place. You will see the strong relationships students form with teachers who challenge, guide, and nurture them every day.
