The Four Pillars: Our Mission & Guiding Principles
The Epiphany School of Global Studies is founded on three guiding principals– College Preparatory, Global Studies and Open-Hearted Faith – all of which are intended to work in concert to create an enriching educational experience for students.
The Epiphany School of Global Studies, anchored in the Judeo-Christian commandment to Love God and Your Neighbor as Yourself, is a rigorous college-preparatory and globally-focused school where dynamic and innovative learning is stretched beyond the classroom walls, emphasizing the knowledge, skills, creativity, adaptability, curiosity, and international experiences students will need to flourish in an increasingly globalized 21st century.
