Admissions Overview & Important Dates

Odyssey School Sign in Asheville

Choosing a school for your child is a big decision. Odyssey’s admission process is designed to help us get to know one another, to develop relationships and for families to learn about the distinctions of an Odyssey education. 

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! A good place to begin is to review our Mission and Values as well as our commitment to Equity and Inclusion. Interested families can register or rsvp for tours, open houses and opportunities to meet teachers. Published dates are below.  

Odyssey’s Admissions Director, Kristin Harkey, leads both in-person and virtual tours with the greatest availability on Thursdays and Fridays. To schedule a tour, please complete this inquiry form or click the button. (Scheduling by calling the school’s main office may cause delays, whereas Kristin aims to respond to emails within (2) working days.)
