Odessa Collegiate Academy
Odessa Collegiate Academy is an Early College High School in Ector County ISD, grades 9-12, located on the Odessa College campus in Deaderick Hall. Our 400+ students graduate with BOTH a high school diploma and an Associates Degree (60 or more college hours) from Odessa College by taking Dual Credit classes, which are tuition free. All students are issued a laptop to complete and submit most of their high school and college assignments.
Our students are taught by both high school teachers and by college professors, depending on the class and subject. High school classes are taught on the Honors level using the ECISD Honors curriculum. OCA students meet regularly with our high school academic counselor and our dual credit college counselor to ensure they are on track to graduate with both degrees.
Each year we accept approximately 125 Freshmen students through an online application process that is completed in the Fall semester. Stop by for a visit to our campus and learn more about the exciting things that are happening at our school. Go Wolves!!!

ALL Odessa Collegiate Academy students will graduate with a high school diploma and college associate degree and will then transfer to a university of their choosing to complete their 4 year bachelor degree.
