Northern VA Odyssey Regional Boundaries

The Odyssey of the Mind program in Northern Virginia has grown significantly. Therefore, starting in the 2011-2012 season, Regions 8 and 13 split to form Regions 9, 11, and 12.

In Fairfax County, these regions are defined by the school system clusters and the high school feeder pyramids as summarized below.

Regional placement for private schools in Fairfax County is determined by the school’s address. In other words, if you lived at the school, which high school would you attend? This can be determined using the Fairfax County Public Schools website:  http://boundary.fcps.edu/boundary/

Regional placement for home schools and other organizations in Fairfax County is determined in the same way as private schools (using the FCPS boundary locator website linked above to determine the associated high school), except that the address used will vary:

  • For home schools that are sponsored by an organization with a physical address, such as a church, the address of the sponsoring organization determines the region.
  • For home schools that have no sponsoring organization with an address, the address that determines regional placement is the shipping address entered when registering for the CCI membership. This is typically the coordinator’s home address.

For Arlington, Alexandria, City of Falls Church, Manassas City, Manassas Park, and Prince William County, all schools are assigned to either Region 11 or Region 12 as designated below.
