Thank you for your interest in the Odyssey School! The staff and I are eager to help you learn about our academics, programs and student life. We look forward to working with you as you get to know our programs, and as we get to know you and your child.

Criteria for Admission

Odyssey School serves 5th-12th grade.

We look forward to getting to know your child in detail and in person. Students who apply must meet these criteria first:

  • The student must have a documented learning disability.
  • The student must have an average to above-average intelligence quotient.
  • The student’s enrollment will have a positive or neutral effect on the school
    community and learning experiences of other students, rather than a negative one.


Admission Process

Our application process has 3 steps: conversation, application, and three-day visit.

1. Conversation

Please contact the School directly to discuss your interest and your child. We also offer tours of the school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Call us at (512) 472-2262 or send us an email at

2. Application 

Please complete an application packet. Tuition information included.


3. Visit

After having a conversation and completing an application packet, please schedule your child’s three-day visit to Odyssey.

Your child will be warmly welcomed and introduced to peers, and will follow a normal schedule with a selected group of students. They may bring work from home or join in the current classwork. Over the three-day visit, your family and our faculty will have time to fully explore the fit.

Once the three-day visit is completed, Odyssey faculty and staff will carefully consider the application and make a decision. We hope to welcome you and your child into our caring, connected community.
