Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Epiphany is an independent, tuition-free, middle school for children of economically disadvantaged families from Boston neighborhoods. We admit children of diverse faiths, races, cultures, and cognitive profiles, believing in the Episcopal tradition that we find God in and through each other's presence.
Epiphany's small classes, individualized curricula, and extended school days provide rigorous academic, moral and social instruction. In close partnership with families, we are an innovative learning community that affords structured support to help students thrive. Together, we are a school that never gives up on a child.
Epiphany challenges students to discover and develop the fullness of their individual gifts. We seek to prepare graduates who will contribute intelligently, morally, and actively to the society they will inherit.
Epiphany is a full-service school, combining the delivery of an excellent academic program with individualized support for each student. Through many organizations the School works with students and families to address their pressing needs. Epiphany has provided full service programming since its founding because we believe that an academic program, however strong, is incomplete if a child is unable to fully utilize it because of health or general well-being. Therefore, providing full-service programming is central to Epiphany's mission.
The specific objective of our full-service program is to deliver vitally needed medical and social services to students. This includes everything from immunizations to psychological counseling. It includes providing students with three meals each day and fitting students for new glasses. It has included helping families access support from social service agencies and assisting parents who are looking for work or housing.
In doing this work, we partner with students and their parents or guardians, serving as a conduit to many of the programs and community agencies in Boston. Full service at Epiphany requires communication and understanding between parents, students, and the School in order to encourage students' strengths and meet their needs. Epiphany's internal mechanism for providing full-service is the Outreach Team, a group of teachers and administrators who direct families to the appropriate agency. The School strives to make judicious choices within the limits of our human and financial resources in order to serve our families as effectively as possible.
A commitment to full-service programming enables Epiphany to fulfill the promise that we will never give up on a child. Our full-service program helps provide the varied supports each child needs to thrive. Being a full-service school connects our students and families to a larger community and brings the community to Epiphany, thereby
