Odyssey Community School is nestled in a natural sanctuary in the heart of a vibrant city, and is a stone’s throw from some of Asheville’s greatest treasures. Our wooded six-acre campus in the gently rolling hills of the Montford historical district is easily accessible from both I-26 and downtown Asheville.

The campus of Odyssey was built by Duke University a quarter-century ago specifically as an educational facility, and the grounds include the main building’s 25,000 square feet with its 15 classrooms, offices, a greenhouse and aquaponic system, an auditorium/gymnasium, and a commercial kitchen and cafeteria.

Odyssey has updated the facilities to include a working music studio, computer lab, SmartBoard classrooms, and a pottery studio complete with a kiln. Our campus also includes a junior Olympic-sized pool, two tennis courts, and a huge, wooded playground.  Our neighbors include the campus of UNC-Asheville, and the Asheville Botanical Gardens.  From here, it’s easy to take advantage of all that the urban center and the wilds of the mountains have to offer!
