Odyssey students love to learn and they have a good time doing it! For six weeks each summer (five weeks for high school), over 370 Odyssey scholars come to the campus of The Westminster Schools and are taught by inspirational faculty. With a low student-to-teacher ratio and experiential and engaging learning techniques, Odyssey teaches students to love gaining knowledge. Students build their skills in core academics (reading, writing, and math) while branching out into new and exciting fields of study, such as forensics, robotics, film, and cultural studies.
Parents of Odyssey students see a difference in academic performance in just one summer, and will continue to return summer-after-summer as their child prepares themselves for college and beyond. Their children are inspired in the classroom, make great friendships, and are encouraged to grow to be responsible stewards of our Atlanta community. As Odyssey commits to providing a powerful summer program free-of-charge, parents make a commitment for their child to get the most out of the Odyssey experience. This means Odyssey students will attend the entire program (students cannot miss more than 3 days, excused or unexcused), be encouraged at home, and be positive members of the Odyssey community.
Odyssey is a “family” of students, teachers, parents, staff, and volunteers who want to provide power through knowledge to Atlanta’s youth. “A quest for knowledge, a path to college”.
