“Education should be about improving student’s lives. I know that is what we do at Epiphany. The parents, students, staff, administration, and board are all focused on that one important thing. It is truly fulfilling to be associated with an organization that is clearly of one mind. And it’s not just the academic prowess our students achieve, but also the confidence and the tools they are taught to use that allows them to make the most of the gifts they have been given. I am confident that when our students leave our program they are well equipped to be successful.”
