EPIC Academy believes that every student can grow, learn, achieve and lead.
EPIC helped me gain confidence and find my voice.
EPIC makes you want to go to college and makes you work harder to get there.
I found out what I'm good at, how to talk to professionals and how to act in the workplace.
I believe in working where there's a great need and that's right here in our neighborhood.
Aligning with EPIC Academy was an obvious action to take.
