I am thrilled that you are exploring Epiphany School for your family.
We are an independent school serving grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade located near the shores of Lake Washington in Seattle's Madrona/Madison Park neighborhood. The best way to experience our academic excellence and student engagement is to come tour our beautiful campus and witness our mission to challenge students to be confident, curious, and courageous.
This year we celebrate 60 years of innovative teaching in a welcoming environment that blends traditional values, such as our focus on character development and respect, with experiential and integrated learning.

Epiphany School offers many enjoyable opportunities for you and your child to know us and to discover why students thrive here. When you walk into our school, visit classrooms, and meet the faculty, administration, community, and students who make up the Epiphany experience, I know you will be inspired.
We strive to make this process a pleasant one for you and for your child. Please explore our website, schedule a tour and contact me anytime along the way. I am looking forward to meeting you soon!

How To Inquire or
Epiphany School is one of the many Seattle area schools that uses Ravenna for online inquiry and application. Through Ravenna you will be able to submit an inquiry, an application, and necessary supplemental forms. Many of these forms are common, shared among multiple schools. Epiphany School’s online application process will open at the end of August 2017. At that time, you can begin submitting your application materials. You also can submit an inquiry at any time, which will allow you to sign up for a group tour and RSVP for our Open House on November 30, 2017.

Typically, more than 50 percent of our Pre-Kindergarten class is open for new families. The other half is filled by siblings of current students. This means there are generally around 14 seats open in Pre-Kindergarten. We add anywhere from 6 to 10 new students in our Kindergarten program and in other grades based on attrition.
Epiphany School supports its family community with a dedicated sibling policy. Siblings of students currently enrolled at Epiphany School are given preference for admission consideration. Sibling applicants must adhere to the school’s age requirements as well as demonstrate academic and emotional readiness for admission.
Epiphany School has a long history of parent involvement. All families automatically become members of the Epiphany Parent Council (EPC) and are expected and encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. There are myriad opportunities to Get Involved -- from reading in the classroom, chaperoning a fieldtrip, to co-chairing our auction.
Most Epiphany School graduates attend independent middle schools in the region. Eighty percent of our graduates receive acceptance from their first choice school. A few students choose the public school HCC (Highly Capable Cohort) or regular program within their local public school. Schools our students typically matriculate to include: Seattle Academy of Arts and Science, The Bush School, Lakeside School, The Northwest School, University Prep, Forest Ridge of the Sacred Heart, Lake Washington Girls Middle School, Seattle Girls School, and Eastside Preparatory School.
Epiphany School was started by the church 60 years ago and became independent shortly thereafter.
The school and the church enjoy a strong neighborly relationship. The church graciously provides space for our school performances, special meetings, and Fifth Grade graduation.
Epiphany School has no religion affiliations and welcomes students ad families of all races, religions, and national or ethnic origins.
