Odyssey offers an innovative approach to education by providing its students with instruction in a second language, Greek, along with an emphasis in mathematics. The Greek language provides an additional focus on the classic roots and fundamentals of English, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
A rigorous standards-based curriculum and instruction in the Greek language is delivered in a challenging, yet nurturing, learning environment. Odyssey students thrive and excel in all academic areas while developing into well-rounded and respectful world citizens.
The mission of Odyssey Charter School is to prepare students for a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, develop a keen awareness of world citizenship and culture, and establish critical thinking and problem-solving proficiency through the added learning of the Modern Greek language and Mathematics focus.
The core philosophy of Odyssey Charter School is that students from all walks of life will establish a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, will become critical thinkers and problem solvers, and will develop a keen awareness of world citizenship when challenged with a structured bilingual and rigorous core curriculum occurring in a nurturing environment.
Beginning this fall, our Lower School Campus will be located at Building #20, in Barley Mill Plaza. For any information during the summer, please contact the Upper School.
The Board of Odyssey Charter School meets once a month in The Upper School Libary.
Starting in February 2013, the School Board will meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month in the OCS Library, at 7:00pm.
Hello OCS Families and Friends,
I hope this letter reaches all of you in good health and spirits! Yesterday, you received a beautiful letter from my colleague at Odyssey Charter School, Assistant Headmaster, Mrs. Denise Parks. She wrote to you about what it meant to be both an Odyssey parent and school leader, and presented an extremely articulate case for your continued financial support. Today, I want to share with you what the PTO’s Paving the Way To Our Future Program means to our school, and why it is worthy of your support.
As you know well, our school is undergoing remarkable growth. This growth has been fueled by parent demand, and our academic excellence is a direct result of the efforts of committed teachers, challenged and engaged students, strong parent support and a learning environment that promotes excellence. Odyssey is young, small and growing, and striving to be the best option in education anywhere. Growth and excellence come with a cost, and they require continuous parental support.
On July 4, 2014, Harvard University's Center for The Hellenic Studies, recognized the participation of Odyssey in the collaboration program between Greek schools and US charter schools.
