Our Mission and Values




The Odyssey Design Principles below provide current and future Odyssey community members navigation tools for the journey ahead. All Odyssey community members are learners, thus the word learner throughout the document refers to all members of the school community – scholars, staff, families, and mentors.




Odyssey STEM Academy empowers learners by awakening their curiosity and passion to transform themselves and the world.  


We value: 


  • An equitable education for all. 
  • An inclusive, culturally-connected community. 
  • Knowing learners well, both as scholars and as individuals. 
  • Teaching learners to use their minds, hands, and hearts well.  
  • Learning that takes place beyond the school walls.
