Visiting & Enrollment

Visiting & Enrollment at Odyssey

Families & educators are welcome to visit Odyssey on our Open House days.  We start each Open House with a powerpoint presentation with our Executive Director.  The presentation is followed with a Q & A session and a tour of our classrooms.  To limit disruption in our classrooms, we try to limit visits to the Open House days.  Open House Schedule

Application Process – How it Works

Odyssey is part of the DPS SchoolChoice Process.  Families should research and visit schools prior to filling out the choice form.

Round 1 – Round 1 has moved to February! Choice forms are available starting in early 2018 and the deadline to submit your choice form is February 28, 2018. Families will rank their top 5 school choices.  Every student will be assigned to a school based on their lottery number and the order that schools are ranked on the form. Students are wait-listed on any higher ranked choices than the school they were assigned.  Families are notified of their school assignment in April.

Round 2 – This round is for families that missed Round 1 or have changed their mind since Round 1.  Round Two SchoolChoice forms are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no lottery involved. If the school has available space for the upcoming school year at the time you submit your form, your student will be approved and enrolled for next year. If a wait-list exists, the student will be added to the end of the list.  Please note: If your student was wait-listed at a school in Round One, DO NOT submit a Round Two form to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s list.
