Odyssey Charter School is a publicly-funded Kindergarten through 6th grade elementary school located in Wilmington, Delaware. Since its inception in 2006, Odyssey Charter School has provided the families of Delaware with a first-class public school education.
Odyssey Charter School is featured on New Castle County TV (Channel 22 Verizon/Channel 29 Comcast/Facebook: New Castle County Government) for our First Place award in the Great Schools Clean Streams contest. Assistant Headmaster Denise Parks, PTO Secretary Jen Gannon and OCS students Evie Gannon and Ethan Towler spoke with host Melody Kitchen about strategies for winning first place and how the contest fit perfectly with OCS’s mission to create critically thinking, global citizens.

The 6th graders put on a fantastic fundraiser at the Bellefonte Arts Festival on Saturday, May 16. About half of the class came to work a shift. The students decided to do this for their service learning (community service) project. They planned it all out, did the research, did the baking, and sold homemade pet treats for $1.00. They are proud to donate $228 to Faithful Friends Animal Shelter. From this experience, they’ve learned about organization, cooperation, advertising, citizenship, and economics.
We are so proud of our 4th graders! They held a VERY successful yard sale at the Lower School on May 2nd and were able to collect $602 donation for the Delaware SPCA. Our funds will be used to feed and vaccinate animals at their shelters. Our 4th graders were also presented with a Certificate of Appreciation. From this experience, students have learned life-long skills in research, organization, cooperation, service, and economics.
7th grade students worked on a National History Day project celebrating individuals who showed leadership and established a legacy.
The Upper School will be moving to the Barley Mill Campus at the end of July.
The Upper School and the Lower School fax machines are currently not working. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the school for further assistance.
Students in Kindergarten are welcome to visit their classroom and meet their teacher. You are welcome to drop off student supplies at this time.
Students entering Grades 4-8 are welcome to tour the new building 22, 5:30-7:00. Please do not bring supplies at this time. Supplies should come with your child on the first day of school.

Greetings Odyssey Families,
I hope this communication reaches all of you in good health and spirits. On behalf of the entire administrative team, I would like to welcome you back to the start of another exciting school year. Hopefully, summer has been an opportunity for quality time with all of your families.
I would like to personally thank each of you who participated in the School Beautification Project last Saturday and also to those of you who were able to attend the Back to School Social on Sunday at Brandywine Springs Park. Both of these events were extremely well attended and supported by our School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Many thanks to the new slate of officers, led by President Mrs. Shamekia Martin, for getting us off to a great start.
Since we last spoke, there have been many new changes at Odyssey Charter School. We are currently in the process of completing our move from St. Thomas to the new Upper School at Barley Mill Plaza #22. Both buildings will be open for staff later this week, and we will begin our teacher In-service Program the week of August 24th. The first day for Kindergarten students is August 31st, with Grades 1-8 students starting on September 1st.
A School Board Meeting has been scheduled for the evening of August 20, 2015 at 7pm at the Elementary School Bldg #20.
Once again this year, Odyssey will be assigning required summer work that all students must complete.
School supply lists for grades k-8 for the academic year 2015-2016, are now available.
On Monday, March 16th, we had an Open House for prospective students in grades 4-8.
