Our Mission

Epiphany Catholic School, a Christ-centered environment, is dedicated to developing the whole child through academic excellence and nourishing servant leaders in the footsteps of Jesus.
 

Our Vision

Epiphany Catholic School is inspired by the Holy Spirit to achieve academic excellence through a curriculum designed to meet the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social needs of its students. Students are challenged to work to their abilities through an integrated curriculum, in a nurturing, supportive, Christ-centered environment. Focusing on Jesus as the Master Teacher, Epiphany Catholic School recognizes parents as primary educators of their children, united in a partnership with qualified faculty and staff. The student’s individuality and God-given talents are fostered as they discover their role in the family, Church, school, community, country and world.

 

Spiritually

Students learn and live their faith as it is integrated throughout their studies and interactions. Teachers, students and families celebrate the Liturgy weekly and participate in spiritual activities together throughout the year.

 

Emotionally

The atmosphere at Epiphany allows students to associate pleasure with learning, and build confidence in their abilities. A safe, loving environment with a family atmosphere between younger and older children makes school a happy place to be.

 

Intellectually

Intellectually, students are challenged to do their personal best. The special talents that God has given to each child are nurtured and supported. The curriculum is designed to meet Diocesan and State Guidelines. Teachers provide opportunities for hands-on learning both in the classroom and out in the community. Annually, students test well above state and national averages on standardized tests. Our faculty of dedicated teachers is committed to achieving success with each student.

 

Physically

Students are provided daily opportunities to perfect a wide range of skills. Participation in physical education and sports provides a healthy balance of competitive and cooperative physical activities.

 

Socially

Students learn their important role in God’s family, in their own family and in their school family. Christ-like respect, understanding, and caring are the foundations for social learning. At Epiphany Catholic School, that learning is put into action through home, school and community service.

Spiritual Theme 

 

Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
 
This year's theme is hope and community. This theme is appropriate as it fits with our Virtues in Practice theme of "Hope" and "trusting in God's loving plan."
 
Virtues are good habits that help us make good choices. Being a Christ centered Community is what makes us a strong and effective Catholic school. It takes a community closely working together to achieve success for Epiphany families. I asked a parent at a Catholic school where my nieces and nephews attend, "What do you love most about your school?" He said, "When we go to the school, it feels like an extension of our home and family." It is my sincere desire for Epiphany Catholic School to feel like an extension of your family.
 
Please know that I am committed to a team centered learning environment with a robust family-school connection. I look forward to family involvement with school special activities and mass.
 
Communication will be a major part of building our community, and we will work toward ongoing two-way communication to build our school community. I look forward to working with every Epiphany family in the year ahead!
 
"Que el Dios de la esperanza te llene de toda alegría y paz al creer,
para que puedas abundar en la esperanza por el poder del Espíritu Santo".
 
El tema de este año es la esperanza y la comunidad. Este tema es apropiado, ya que encaja con nuestro tema de Virtudes en la Práctica de "Esperanza" y "confiar en el plan amoroso de Dios".
 
Las virtudes son buenos hábitos que nos ayudan a tomar buenas decisiones. Ser una comunidad centrada en Cristo es lo que nos convierte en una escuela católica fuerte y eficaz. Se necesita una comunidad que trabaje en estrecha colaboración para lograr el éxito de las familias de Epifanía. Le pregunté a un padre de una escuela católica a la que asisten mis sobrinas y sobrinos: "¿Qué es lo que más te gusta de tu escuela?" Dijo: "cuando vamos a la escuela, se siente como una extensión de nuestro hogar y nuestra familia". Es mi sincero deseo que la Escuela Católica Epifanía se sienta como una extensión de su familia.
 
Por favor, sepa que estoy comprometido con un entorno de aprendizaje centrado en el equipo con una sólida conexión entre la familia y la escuela. Espero con interés la participación de la familia en las actividades especiales de la escuela y la misa.
 
La comunicación será una parte importante de la construcción de nuestra comunidad y trabajaremos hacia una comunicación bidireccional continua para construir nuestra comunidad escolar. ¡Espero trabajar con todas las familias de Epifanía el próximo año!
