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.
