School Notes

  • Odyssey has all kinds of learners and we work to make admissions a four-step process:  1. A campus tour is most often the initial opportunity to more deeply learn about our unique approach to alternative education. We work with families remotely as well. Please contact Kristin Harkey, kharkey@odysseycommunity.org for more information.  2. Schedule a shadow day or morning for our student. Durring this classroom visit, we may request completion of a written supplement.  3. Submit an application and records request form for retrieval of transcripts. 4. After receiving your welcome letter, remit a signed tuition letter and pay an initial deposit,

I have been a parent at Odyssey for 7 years. My child has flourished at odyssey. The integral education model allows a child of any age to simultaneously be challenged academically while nurturing the other vital aspects of what make us human. Through this balanced approach the students become strong independent thinkers and are truly prepared on all fronts for the challenges of growing up in our complicated society.
