Middle School Curriculum
In middle school, Epiphany students can begin to start connecting some of the concepts they've learned in lower grades with bigger ideas. Skills like critical thinking and problem-solving are fostered in the classroom and broadened through valuable experiential learning trips throughout each year of middle school. Additional humanities and life skills classes compliment the rich STEM curriculum to help create a more well-rounded student and prepare them for the rigors of Epiphany's high school curriculum.
- Living history and experiential learning trips to Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, Charleston, Washington DC
- STEM trip to Disney for grades 6-8
- Small class sizes provide more personalized, individualized attention (8:1 student to faculty ratio)
- Highly qualified, experienced teachers who care about each student - focus on the individual student to achieve maximum potential
- Learning Services and various tutoring opportunities are available
- Kids want to come to school every day. Students, teachers, and parents describe their experience as a family, supportive, happy, friendly, and safe.
