Dear Odyssey students and families, 


We are glad you are taking the time to learn about our newest program operated by the Ventura County Office of Education. Odyssey provides a safe learning environment for students to foster authentic relationships, a sense of belonging, developing independence and the skills that lead to personal and academic success.  

Students are referred to our program by local school districts through their Individual Education Program (IEP). Currently, the program supports 9th-12th grade students and supports earning credits towards a high school diploma. Odyssey strives to engage and empower students to develop their strengths on their journey to self-discovery so that they develop a new and valuable relationship with learning.  


Odyssey Core Values:  

  • Engaged Learning Community  

  • Building and Maintaining Authentic Relationships  

  • Accept Diversity- Sense of Belonging for All  

  • Discovering and Using Individual Strengths  

  • Identify and Celebrate Growth  


Our hope is that you find our website user friendly and if you have any further question, please contact our office.

Director, Alternative Education
