Epiphany is a K-8 Catholic School that has served families of the Epiphany Parish for 46 years. We are committed to educating the whole child; mind, body, and soul. We are staffed by teachers who are faith-filled, caring, and dedicated to each individual child. They are committed to academic excellence as well as the spiritual development of their students. Our students are immersed into the life of their Catholic Faith. They celebrate Mass weekly, begin and end each day in prayer, visit the adoration chapel, and study their Catholic Faith each day. They are encouraged to live the Great Commandments of Loving God and their neighbor. Students live these commandments through school service projects and treating each other with kindness and charity. Church of the Epiphany provides the Gift of a Catholic Education to all of its families. It is the most valuable tool in Evangelizing our young and introducing them to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We invite everyone to join us.
Epiphany Catholic School, an integral part of Epiphany Parish, is a Christ-centered faith community. Dedicated to formation of the whole person we are committed to providing all students with the highest quality Catholic education. We are preparing students to “Manifest Christ to All.”
We believe the purpose of Catholic education is to know and understand the gospel message, to worship, to build and be a community of faith. That Christ is present at all times, with the Eucharist at the heart of our lives as Catholics, and that we, all are created in the image and likeness of God. We believe that all students are taught, encouraged, and supported in learning essential knowledge and the skills that support life-long learning. That learning is the flexible use of knowledge in a variety of contexts and engaging experiences and enables students to benefit in a positive school environment.
Epiphany Parish, which began in 1964, was founded with educational priorities as part of its mission. Through the hard work of Pastor, Reverend Bernard Reiser whose vision was to build a school first because “… if salvation was the primary goal, then Epiphany must offer its children five days of Catholic education.” The first staff was composed of four lay teachers and six Sisters of Notre Dame. The school opened its doors in 1967 serving grades three through seven. During the years that followed Epiphany School doubled in size and grew to include first through ninth. In August of 1984, Kindergarten was added, followed by a Extended day program to serve school families in 1987. The mid 1990’s began large remodeling projects, enabling the school to expand its facilities for educational resources for students. These facilities included space for Special Education, Chapter 1, Foreign language and additional classrooms due to the growing size. In 2005 full-day Kindergarten began and a preschool program was added to the extended day program.Epiphany offers a comprehensive learning program for students in grades K-8. In its forty years Epiphany has graduated over 3,000 students. Father Reiser retired in 2001, and was followed by Father Kennedy, and Father Zehran in 2004. In 2012, Father Thomas Duffner became pastor of Epiphany Parish and continues to lead with a strong vision for Catholic Education.
