Dorchester is a thriving and vibrant community, and Epiphany is committed to being an active participant in making this neighborhood a safe place for our students, neighbors, and families by forming strong collaborations with established community agencies. Epiphany often serves as “the mortar between the bricks” in the lives of our students and their families. In other words, we partner with other organizations to facilitate their work and to serve these great kids. A number of community groups and nearby schools use our facilities during the year, including the Melville Park Civic Association, Codman Academy, the local Hindu community, and various local church groups. In the summer, St. Stephen’s Church runs at Epiphany a highly regarded day camp (B-Safe) for 120 neighborhood children, and Let’s Get ready runs a SAT/College prep class in the evenings. We are proud that our Schoolhouse is virtually never closed and has become a real community hub. Hundreds of volunteers and supporters come to the school each week to meet and work with others from different backgrounds.
