Service Learning and Community Outreach

A way of life for epiphany students, faculty, staff, and families

From Pre-Kindergarten onward, Epiphany students are consistently engaged in creating changes that make the world a better place. Through community involvement and service learning, your child discovers:

  • “I can help others in my school, my community, and the world.”
  • "I can give my time, my energy, and my money to help other people."
  • “I can accomplish bigger things when I work with others.”
  • “I can make a difference in someone’s life.”

Service learning at Epiphany provides your child with creative, fun, and interactive ways to experience the power of activism and service – from seasonal pop-up markets, to monthly Donation Stations, to our year-round compost program, to our annual Coin Drive led entirely by Fifth Graders.

Day of Caring

In addition to our annual Day of Caring when the entire school focuses on service learning for the day, we also provide a broad range of opportunities for students and families that often extend the lessons being taught in classrooms. Contributions include time, energy, creativity, and crowd-sourcing to help improve the lives of people, animals, and the environment.

Epiphany School has many long-established relationships with local community organizations that serve families and youth, as well as a unique connection to a sister school in Uganda.
