Mission: The mission of EPIC High Schools is to challenge all students to dream big and to support them in designing their future. We recognize that each student is an individual and therefore provide a series of learning experiences that equip young people to walk their unique paths. We honor and integrate the cultures of our communities to make learning relevant, responsive, and accessible, as we develop citizens with a positive sense of self, ready to stand for social justice. Vision: All graduates will be college- and career-ready as we provide a meaningful pathway to lifelong learning for every student. By fostering the boldness to dream and by developing a commitment to inner growth and outward transformation, our graduates will be ready to design their own futures.
An ideal candidate for EPIC High School South is a teacher who embodies the philosophy of being a lifelong learner, for themselves and their students. Teacher learning is an integral part of our school culture, therefore, regardless of your experience, we are looking for teachers who are learners first. Teachers should be able to apply concepts in their certification area, offer students real-life examples and show how students can apply what they learn to the everyday world.
