Welcome to Gordon Odyssey Academy!

From the Director: Dr. LaNisha Tindal

Welcome to GOA! I am excited to begin my 5th year as Director.   We are well on our way to having a tremendous year.  The 2016 -2017 school year was one of great achievements. We accomplished many things last year: DHEC Recycling Grant Recipient,  Donors Choose Grant Recipient, Upward Bound Participants, MAP test gains, among many other things.

The teachers, staff and students work collaboratively each day to provide all students with a quality education. There are three programs that fall under Gordon Odyssey Academy: STAR Academy, Behavior Modification, and Fairfield County Adult Education.  The students we serve are given the extra attention they need to help them reach their goals of behavior modification and/or high school graduation.  We are not just the alternative; we are the standard of excellence. GOA's standard of excellence resonates throughout our building and community.

Together, with our returning staff members, we plan to take our students on a journey Where Greater Opportunities Await!  

 Educationally yours,

LaNisha C. Tindal, EdD
