There is an urgent need, in America, for schools that can succeed with students who learn in unconventional ways. Students with learning differences are not necessarily best suited by remedial or vocational classes; many of them have the desire and ability to perform at high academic levels. What they need is a different approach to the curriculum – one that engages their learning styles and helps them deal strategically with their weaknesses. Odyssey School has been Austin’s leader in educating students with learning differences for over a decade. It has a proven track record of success. Now, with the addition of the Odyssey High School program and the first graduating classes entering the community, your gift can make a real difference in the life of a child with learning disabilities.
Odyssey is a 501.(c) 3 not-for-profit school. Tuition pays only 75% of the cost of educating each student, and fundraising is necessary to make up the difference. Donations help pay the operating costs of the school to balance the budget. Therefore fundraising is essential to maintain Odyssey School’s commitment to reasonable tuition for exemplary individualized educational programming with small class sizes and quality teachers.
Thank you for playing an important role in making a difference in the lives of our students and community.
