Odessa Collegiate Academy (OCA) is an accelerated and technology-based high school program located on the Odessa College (OC) campus. OCA will average between 400-500 students for the 2022-2023 school year and will accept approximately 125 incoming Freshmen. Our students take about 20 honors-level high school classes from trained and certified ECISD teachers over four years and approximately 20 college classes from OC professors. As a result, our students graduate with BOTH a high school diploma and a college associate degree (worth 60+ college hours) at the end of their senior year. In addition, students accepted into our program take their college classes tuition-free.
OCA is looking for self-motivated, punctual students who accept the challenge of rigorous classes that require daily and weekend homework and writing-intensive assignments. Our students receive a Chromebook laptop for working on their coursework in Blackboard. After our students graduate, they are expected to transfer to a four-year university and finish their bachelor's degree at their chosen college. Our students choose from six-degree plans for their associate degree: Biology, Business Administration, General Studies, General Studies - Liberal Arts, General Studies - STEM, and Teaching EC-6th Grade.
Are you willing to work hard, participate in all your classes, manage your daily homework, attend tutoring, have excellent attendance, and strive for consistent A's and B's? In that case, OCA may be the place for you! Earning your associate degree by the time you graduate from high school gives you a significant advantage as you transfer to a four-year university. Are YOU ready to meet the academic challenges and join the OCA Blue Wolf Family? We hope so!
