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 a non-profit, independent school for students in grades 3rd through 9th providing social communication and emotional skills curriculum and strong academics in a safe and nurturing community. In a small classroom setting, we help students discover and develop their individual strengths and cultivate skills to succeed emotionally, socially, spiritually, and cognitively.
We believe in creating an educational experience that is tailored to the unique social and academic needs of our students. The Epiphany experience is rooted in safe, positive, and connected relationships that embrace understanding, individuality, acceptance and belonging. As a result, social and academic learning is engaging, challenging, meaningful and long lasting.
Our goal is to help each child experience success and increase confidence to skillfully thrive in the world today and into the future.
As a non-profit school in its early stage of development, our primary source of funding comes from student tuition. However, tuition alone cannot cover everything. We need your support. Your gifts to The Epiphany School of Charlotte empower us to hire the finest teachers, provide essential student supplies, and provide a truly unique educational experience that helps children and families thrive.
It started with a belief.
The Epiphany School of Charlotte, Inc., was established in 2008 through the Regents Schools of the Carolinas, Inc, as a program for children with specific needs. Epiphany students all have social and communication challenges. 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, 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.
Epiphany was founded because there was no other educational alternative for this population of children. Most of our students have tried various educational options before they arrive at Epiphany. However, there is a commonality in their history. Each child “didn’t quite fit” into the other educational settings.
Working with professionals from various disciplines, including counselors and psychologists at SouthEast Psychological Services, Epiphany developed an individualized curriculum to address the social and communication challenges our students face.
Enrollment in The Epiphany School is available for grades 3rd through 9th, whose primary difficulties with social and communication skills impact their ability to learn comfortably and productively. In a small classroom setting (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. We help students move forward, manage their struggles by leaning on strengths, and cultivate more skills all along the way.
