Welcome to The Odyssey Family of Schools. In March of 2008, our first informal parent's meeting took place at the Buckeye Chamber of Commerce. On January 13, 2009, The Arizona State Board for Charter Schools granted us our charter. The Odyssey Family of Schools started off in a strip mall with over 400 scholars in kindergarten through sixth grade. In the fall of 2010, we opened up the Odyssey Buckeye Apache campus with 600 scholars. In 2011 we opened up the Odyssey Goodyear campus, followed by the opening of the Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies for junior high and high school in 2012. In the 2016-2017 school year, the Sienna Hills elementary school campus and the Junior High campus were officially opened. Today, the Odyssey Family of Schools consists of five campuses educating approximately 3,000 scholars from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Our youngest scholars begin their learning adventure at The Iliad Preschool where they are exposed to academics, foreign languages, art, music, physical education, and making responsible choices. The quest for knowledge continues as scholars navigate their way through our phenomenal Odyssey Preparatory Academies and The Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies. The journey concludes–not simply with college admission–but by the wholehearted admission of life-long scholars and principled individuals into a global society in which they are prepared to flourish and lead. We emphasize our mission, vision, and core values every day.

TOPA’s 3rd Core Value is “Growth is not always measured by test scores.” We will always adhere to the core value as we know scholars learn more when they are engaged in meaningful learning, not simply test-taking skills. However, we also understand that AZ Merit scores always pique public interest; as a way to make TOPA’s AZ Merit scores easy to read, we have compiled the following data by campus.
