Lower School Curriculum

The Epiphany lower school creates a strong foundation for a life full of learning and seeking new experiences. Our Spanish immersion program is a hallmark of our lower school curriculum, and its benefits reach far beyond becoming fluent in a valuable second language. Students are taught the value of working together and learn important interpersonal relationship skills as well as developing the necessary skills to thrive in middle school.

  • Small class sizes equal personalized, individualized attention (8:1 student to faculty ratio)
  • Lower School students begin Kindergarten in a 50% Spanish and 50% English setting and continue this structure through the end of second grade. Spanish language learning continues each day in grades 3-5, with more instructional time devoted to other core subjects in English.
  • Balanced STEM curriculum with a comprehensive, hands-on science program
  • Enrichment classes teach students the value of collaboration and communication and lay the foundation for a broader, global perspective
  • Highly qualified, experienced teachers who care about each student - focus on relationship building with each individual student to achieve maximum potential
  • Learning Services and various tutoring opportunities are available
  • No teaching to the test/EOG/standardized testing allowing teachers to teach the full year and focus on each student's achievements and needs
  • Dual accreditation by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools AND Southern Association of Independent Schools
  • Regular field trips and experiential learning opportunities for each grade throughout the year.
