Welcome, Military Students and Families!

Epic Charter School is proud to provide support for our military-connected children, youth, and families. We know there are educational and personal challenges faced during the transition to a new school. Our mission is to fulfill every student’s individual potential by personalizing an educational plan that focuses on school and family partnerships that will keep students on track for graduation and ensure they will be college, workforce, and life ready while also providing the necessary social-emotional support.
