Northgate Odyssey of the Mind

About Northgate Odyssey

Northgate Odyssey is a school-sponsored, parent-run, non-profit organization and its purpose is:

to provide educational support to Northgate School District students by developing their creativity, divergent thinking, and problem-solving skills through Odyssey of the Mind as a free program.

OM has been offered at Avalon Elementary School and Bellevue Elementary School since 2021. We will expand to the Northgate Middle School during the 2023-2024 academic year.

Because OM is run by a parent organization, school principals and district administrators do not know specifics of what is happening with OM. If you have questions or concerns, please direct them to Northgate Odyssey at

Because coaches are parent volunteers, we run Odyssey of the Mind as an after-school program.

Although the Northgate School District provides some funding to our organization (for which we are so grateful), we are largely supporting by fundraising. We gained non-profit status in 2022, which will help the organization as we continue to fundraise.
