WE LISTEN TO THE VOICES OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE.

In 2014 the ESI School Design Fellowship, an outgrowth of the NYC mayor’s YMI initiative and the Expanded Success Initiative (and with generous support from Open Society Foundations), designed and prepared to open the EPIC High Schools. The EPIC High School model is designed to make learning responsive, engaging and accessible. We develop graduates with a positive sense of self, ready to stand for social justice. EPIC’s personalized approach to instruction challenges students to dream big and design their futures.
