Welcome

Welcome to The Epiphany School!

The Epiphany School provides an educational environment that inspires academic achievement, fosters spiritual growth, and celebrates the individual. It is a place where teachers, administrators, students, and parents partner to ensure a nurturing, supportive school community. Our students receive a well-rounded, highly competitive, and individually challenging academic experience, grounded in the value-centered Catholic tradition.

Led by the example of our teachers and parents, who share their many gifts with our school community, students are inspired to use the knowledge, skills, and values they acquire at The Epiphany School to share God’s message with others. Graduates continue to top-ranked high schools in and around New York City, confident in their intellectual abilities, secure in their sense of purpose, and committed to improving the world as moral and ethical people.

The Epiphany School carries a tradition of excellence. Excellence requires that we are always striving and growing, never complacent. To that end 2016-2017 will bring several new things to the Epiphany community. Technology has become an increasingly important part of our instructional program over the past several years. Access to computer labs, 1:1 iPads, and interactive RealTouch Displays in every classroom have enabled our amazing faculty to utilize blended learning, merge traditional and digital instruction, and fueled our students’ creative thinking, but during that time we neglected our website. The new layout, features, and content of our site now reflects the digital world that Epiphany student have access to everyday. We hope that you take time to explore our updated website and that both current and prospective families find it to be useful. While exploring the site, and that of the Epiphany School Foundation, you may notice that our school logo has been updated to strengthen the visual representation of our school, bringing together the various images that that we have used in the past into one unified, official Epiphany School logo that will be used consistently throughout our community.

Our school community will expand this year to welcome our youngest Epiphany students – the Toddler Twos!  Led by Mrs. Megan Grant, the Toddler Twos will explore their world through art, storytelling, and imaginative play, gain independence and practice cooperative skills. We welcome the curiosity, energy, and joy that the class of 2028 will undoubtedly bring to Epiphany!

Most notably, 2016-2017 brings a new leadership model to our school.  The President-Principal model will provide a leadership structure with a shared goal, but a clear division of responsibilities, to serve our students, their families and the Epiphany community.  As principal, I look forward to working with our faculty, students and parents to ensure that students graduate from The Epiphany School confident in their academic abilities, filled with faith, and ready to share their gifts with others. With Mrs. Mary Jane Higgins by my side as our Vice Principal, and the support of our President, Mr. James L. Hayes, and pastor, Fr. Austin Titus, I am confident that 2016-2017 will be filled with success for all members of our Epiphany School community.

We are The Epiphany School – A Tradition of Excellence!  

Sincerely,
