Odyssey nurtures the students' belief in their ability to succeed in an area where they may have struggled in the past. Odyssey's teachers are trained in providing researched and proven methodologies in order to tailor each lesson to meet individual needs.
Daily Reading and Writing Tutoring
50 Minutes of Intensive Daily Tutoring
Each student receives a daily fifty minute period of intensive reading and writing instruction with a highly trained and experienced reading tutor. The individualized instruction is tailored to the student's specific language needs.
Small Class Size and Personalized Instruction
A 3:1 Student Teacher Ratio
Odyssey offers small class sizes for every class, and provides a productive, challenging, and rewarding academic experience for bright dyslexic students.
The academic day is comprised of six fifty-minute periods. In addition to the content and extra-curricular classes scheduled for students, the Lower School students meet in homeroom for a twenty-five minute period at the beginning and again at the end of the day. Middle School students participate in clubs three mornings each week, and utilize the afternoon homeroom period, Dockside, as a study hall and an opportunity to seek academic support from faculty members.
The students' joy of learning demonstrates the wisdom of this multi-sensory, individualized program.
