“We focus on the process of learning, the whys and the hows, which aligns with the unique minds of our students.”

–Erin Morris, Head of School

Epiphany students learn to think critically, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively through discussion based learning and small group or individualized instruction.

An alternative to traditional rote memorization and teacher-focused instruction, Epiphany uses a student-centered and inquiry-based learning approach with classroom projects and technology to engage students in collaborative real-world investigations. It’s “learning by doing.”
