At Epiphany, however, we celebrate each child’s uniqueness and we create an unhurried environment of self-awareness and openness to learning. The result is a place for our amazing children to not merely be educated, but to flourish and achieve their greatest potential.

See What Life Is Like at a School for Students with Social Communication Disorders
Epiphany is more than a school for social communication disorders — it’s a feeling of belonging. Your child can be themselves at Epiphany without fear of judgment. They can share special interests with peers and nurture friendships that transcend the classroom. They can grow in ways the world never thought possible.
To see it for yourself, we suggest all families schedule a tour before applying for admission. A tour helps parents and children decide if Epiphany is a good fit.
Call us to schedule a tour at (704) 496-9942.

Parents must provide a current (within 2 years) comprehensive psychological and educational evaluation to The Epiphany School of Charlotte. This document will be requested at the onset of the official application process. It is important to have an updated evaluation ready before applying.
Epiphany staff may observe your child in his or her current school setting. Prospective students will participate in two to three scheduled days at Epiphany.

A school for social communication disorder fosters a learning environment where students succeed academically as well as socially and emotionally. At Epiphany, our curriculum focuses on social-emotional learning, providing children with opportunities to develop key skills like self-awareness and self-management.
