A Different Way of Thinking About Education
The Epiphany School of Charlotte provides social and academic success for students with social and communication challenges, and other children who move through our world a little differently.
We are an independent, non-profit school for students in grades 3 through 9, providing an integrated social emotional learning curriculum and strong academics in a safe and nurturing community. In small classroom settings, we help students discover and develop their individual strengths and cultivate skills to succeed cognitively, emotionally, and socially.
The Epiphany experience is rooted in safe, positive, and connected relationships that embrace understanding, individuality, acceptance, and belonging. We believe in creating an educational experience that is tailored to the unique social and academic needs of our students. As a result, social and academic learning is engaging, challenging, meaningful and long lasting.
Our goal is for each child to experience success and increased confidence to skillfully thrive today and in the future.
Our program is a skills-based approach for children who move through the social world a little differently. Our students might have conditions such as Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder, or another learning disability. Or, they might have no formal diagnosis at all. Their commonality is a departure from the “main stream” that affects communication, perception and ultimately learning.
The Epiphany School serves children in grades 3 through 9, whose primary difficulties with social and communication skills impact their ability to learn comfortably and productively. In our small classroom settings (no more than 8 students in any class), our teachers embrace the individuality of learning, as well as its complexity. We seek to discover each student’s unique way of acquiring and retaining knowledge, helping them move forward, manage their struggles by leaning on strengths, and cultivate more skills all along the way.
