Learning ServicesThe Office of Learning Services of The Epiphany School of Global Studies commits to helping students in grades K-5 achieve learning gains and develop confidence in their abilities. In grades 6-12, The Office of Learning Services commits to preparing students for success in college and for significance in their lives beyond the school walls by helping them cultivate a sense of capability, determination, resilience, self-advocacy, and a love of learning.
Appreciating differences in students' learning processes, the faculty at The Epiphany School of Global Studies, with its expertise and wisdom, is dedicated to pursuing the best for each student as he or she progresses toward college acceptance. A "Team of Professionals," which includes the student, his or her parents, teachers, division principal and possible tutor, is encouraged to work together and to openly communicate the needs, goals, and strategies beneficial to the student's learning. With proper documentation and the "Team's" input, a plan of accommodations that will support the student's learning needs is prepared and implemented.
This plan may also include tutoring services coordinated with the assistance of the Director of Learning Services. Tutoring may be scheduled during the traditional school day with consideration of minimal conflict with other classes. The Tutors are trained to build on classroom instruction and to work in cooperation with Epiphany teachers. It is a parent's responsibility to arrange financial compensation with the tutor directly.
The Office of Learning Services also commits to providing resources for teachers, parents, and adults significant in the students' lives that will encourage an empathetic and supportive environment, emphasizing success, maturity, and independence.
The Office of Learning Services embraces the words from Psalm 139:14, "I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well," and 1 Cor. 12:4, 25-26, "There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit….so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored every part rejoices with it." Reminded that we are gloriously gifted by the Holy Spirit, the Office of Learning Services encourages all Epiphany students to respect and appreciate the learning differences of others.
