California Common Core Standards in core academic subjects as defined by No Child Left Behind (“NCLB”) legislation and the Education Code. Epiphany Prep guides students to perform at higher levels on the Smarter Balanced Assessment measures. However, our school also expands the opportunities for student learning beyond the state standards of achievement. Students need to be successful on state required assessments and also demonstrate behaviors that lead to success in their lives. Our teachers employ strong teaching abilities along with the commitment to utilize researched based instructional approaches to prepare students for their future success in college, career and life. Our students will be prepared for the 21st century and exhibit leadership skills in resolving problems and thinking innovatively. They will be inspired with a desire and a belief in themselves so that they can and will achieve.

BREAKING NEWS: The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
 
The latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, signed into law Dec. 10, turns us away from the No Child Left Behind Act.
