Program Description

Mission: Odyssey is an educational non-profit organization partnering with the Atlanta Public Schools to serve students in grades 3-12 from economically disadvantaged communities. Odysseyâ??s academic enrichment program focuses on students with unmet potential, preparing them for high school graduation and supporting them on their path to college. Program Details: Odyssey is a 6-week summer program (5-weeks for Odyssey High) held on the campus of The Westminster Schools. Students selected to attend Odyssey are enrolled at schools in the Atlanta Public School system and will be in grades 3 through 12 in the school year following the Odyssey summer. All expenses to attend Odyssey â?? from transportation to and from The Westminster Schools, to school supplies, to snacks and lunch â?? are provided through the generosity of our donors and supporters. Odyssey strives to create an engaging educational environment that gives students the ability to excel in the upcoming school year and beyond, and to find value and excitement in classroom learning.
