Application Process

Dear Prospective Parents,

Jones_Greg_2013.jpgI am thrilled that you are exploring Epiphany School. Academic excellence, leadership, and confidence are hallmark values reinforced daily. This year we celebrate 58 years of educating courageous learners. Be sure to look at our mission and values. Then, come visit, as it is through the engagement of our students and faculty that you will truly appreciate the mission we live and the inclusivity we cultivate. Tour our classes to witness the dynamic tension between innovation and tradition that we intentionally create every day.

Finding the right school for your family is a journey that takes parental perseverance. The process of applying to independent schools can be daunting. However, I know that you will enjoy the many opportunities to get to know our school and to learn what makes us unique. When you walk into an independent school and meet the faculty, administration, current parent body, and students, you will know if the fit is right. We strive to make the process a pleasant one for you and for your child. Please explore, and contact me anytime along the way.
Please follow the steps below to inquire or apply.

Sincerely,

Greg Jones
Director of Admission

How to Apply

Epiphany School is one of the 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 on September 1, 2016. At that time, you will be able to begin submitting your application materials. You can also submit an inquiry at any time, which will allow you to sign up for a group tour and RSVP for our Open House on December 1, 2016. 

Applications to First through Fifth grades will be considered based on space available. 

For the 2016–2017 academic year, tuition at Epiphany School is the following:

All grades, Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade: $21,595

Kindergarten: Applicants for the school year 2017-2018 must be 5 years old by September 1st 2017.

Sibling Preference

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. Parents of a sibling applicant must apply at the first available opportunity for placement. If parents of siblings neither apply at the first opportunity nor accept an offer of enrollment, the preferred sibling status is forfeited.

Sibling Decisions will be Released on December 16th. 

Please email Greg Jones if you have any questions. 

 

 

Student Potential

It is the role of the Admission Committee to determine which students are best qualified for admission. A number of criteria may be used to reach this determination, including academic and social assessments through the school visit, review of the application materials, and parent interviews.
