Odyssey: Atlanta’s Alternative to Summer Camp

Odyssey, a transformational academic program with a proven track record, works with motivated public school students to help improve their performance and instill a love for lifelong learning. The program targets Atlanta Public Schools students in rising grades 1 to 12 from underserved communities. Odyssey started as an educational six-week summer enrichment program and has evolved into a year-round experience for over 300 students, focusing on STEAM — science, technology, engineering, art, and math — through a curriculum grounded in Project Based Learning. Odyssey encourages students to embark upon a quest for knowledge and a journey toward higher education.


Odyssey’s program supports students emerging primarily from economically disadvantaged Title 1 schools and challenging learning environments. Although our scholars may need the extra push, they exhibit a profound curiosity, exuberant motivation, and an enthusiastic drive to explore the world’s diverse perspectives.


Odyssey’s summer curriculum also exposes students to concepts they will cover during the upcoming school year but in a more creative, rich, and immersive environment. Our vision is to make a measurable impact on the academic achievement, career aspirations, and lives of Odyssey students. As life-long learners, they will emerge as positive forces, making lasting impacts in the communities in which they live and serve. 


One of the unique aspects of Odyssey is that all associated costs, including transportation, school supplies, and meals, are entirely covered by the generosity of our valued donors, supporters, and corporate sponsors. As such, only a $35 registration fee as a sign of a family’s commitment is required.
