Things to Know:
Students who choose to return to Odyssey year after year experience priority acceptance for each subsequent year they apply. However, if a student successfully completed one year, skipped the next year, and choose to reapply the next, he or she will need to fill out a New Student Application.
Students who have never attended Odyssey, or did not successfully complete the program, will need to apply through the New Student Application process. This application is slightly longer, and will need to be accompanied by the applicant’s most recent report card, a Student Recommendation Form, and a project. These “projects” are age appropriate. For older students, this is typically an essay on a predetermined topic. For younger students, this is typically a collage, picture, or other creative medium.
Student Recommendation Forms:
A Student Recommendation Form is required for each new student. Odyssey is happy to send these forms via email to the individual of your choice. Simply send Carissa Engelbert (email@example.com) an emailed request that includes 1)The name of the individual you wish to complete your recommendation, and 2) that individual’s email address. You are also free to email this individual yourself with Odyssey’s website link. We are most impressed with recommendations from teachers, counselors, principals, or other community leaders. We also love to see the extracurricular activities our students involve themselves in, so a recommendation from your boy/girl scout leader, a church group representative, or other foundation members or mentors are other fantastic sources. Please choose an individual who has known you for a long time, preferably one (1) or more years.
