School shouldn't be "done to you"; it should be a journey whose course you chart.
EPIC Academy is reimagining the high school experience by putting you, the student, in the driver's seat. Instead of earning all of your graduation proficiencies in traditional classes, EPIC invites you to learn and showcase your mastery through projects YOU design and care about.
Every 9 weeks, you'll choose your topic, decide which proficiencies to embed, and collaborate with peers, teacher mentors, and community partners to explore your theme.
Say goodbye to tests. In EPIC Academy, we believe that authentic assessment means creating tangible products you're proud to share with your peers and community. Whether you design an art installation, a video game, a screenplay, or a TED talk, you'll showcase your process and learning in a context that is meaningful to you.

WE BELIEVE THAT LEARNING SHOULD:

be liberated from the constraints of time and content areas.

impact the learner and the wider world
POWERED BY PASSION &
